Fiber cement siding is a building material used to cover the exterior of a building in both commercial and domestic applications. Typically, this siding is most often used in applications to imitate wood siding and is known for its durability and throughout its lifetime, and requires very littler maintenance once installed and painted. When Two Structures Homes chooses a material for our homes, we look for the best of the best. That includes windows, wood material and this siding, which is why we have partnered with James Hardie Siding in all of our home construction.
Fiber cement contains a mix of cellulose fiber material, Portland cement, silica, sand, water and other additives . This material has been an important piece is home construction since fiber cement boards replaced the asbestos cement sheeting used until the 1980s. The beauty that comes with James Hardie Siding can be seen through various applications of the siding; through the way it’s laid out, to the size and shape of each panel. Most homes typically feature the traditional look with a horizontal pattern, but with a little forward thinking and a discussion with your builder, one can create a one-of-a-kind home just from how one uses fiber cement boards on the exterior of a home.
