What Are The Benefits of Fiber Cement Siding?
Since fiber cement siding is prefabricated and contains a mixture of materials, it offers unique benefits for the home, such as:
- Stands Up to the Elements: Fiber cement holds up well in harsh weather; therefore, it’s a perfect siding choice for the long, freezing winters in Minnesota. It also stands up well to UV rays, high winds, and hail. Fiber cement does an exceptional job of protecting the inside from the outside.
- Flame-Resistant: Fiber cement siding carries a Class A Fire Rating. The mixture of cement, sand, and wood fibers makes it virtually impenetrable. It can withstand several hours of extremely high heat before melting and can prevent fire from spreading throughout the rest of the home.
- The Look of Natural Wood: You may be surprised at how much fiber cement looks like real wood. You get a natural-looking surface but with added durability and lower maintenance versus wood. Fiber cement siding is available in a variety of wood colors and stains.
- No Insects, No Rotting: One of the reasons why mold, moisture, and insects develop in other types of siding is because they overlap. Fiber cement siding does not overlap because there are no seams. This feature prevents insects and mold from growing between the siding and the wall.
With all the benefits of fiber cement siding, it is easy to see why it’s the best choice for homeowners in Minnesota.
