Fiber Cement Siding

Consider Fiber Cement Siding

Choosing the right siding for the exterior of your home can be a difficult task. While vinyl siding is one of the most popular options, if you want to consider something different, fiber cement siding can be an affordable alternative. The primary benefit of choosing this type of siding for your Massachusetts home is its durability. Many of the manufacturers also include a 30 to 50 year warranty on their products, giving homeowners peace of mind in the longevity of their siding. At Colony Home Improvement, our home improvement contractors can help you choose the right siding in the perfect color to complement your home.

The following are a few options available in the fiber cement siding market:

  • HardiePlank Lap Siding – This fiber cement siding is one of the most popular options in the country. It has been installed on more than four million homes. The durability, strength and beauty of the HardiePlank Lap Siding protect your home from the harsh Massachusetts weather.
  • HardieShingle Siding – HardieShingle Siding looks just like traditional cedar shingle siding without the threat of rotting, splitting and cracking. This siding makes the perfect complement to other types of siding or as the primary choice. These shingle siding panels are available with a variety of decorative edging and can quickly be installed in larger sections.
  • HardiePanel Vertical Siding – Vertical siding may not be as common, but many homes look great with this siding alternative. The vertical siding is equal in value and durability to the lap siding. Many homeowners choose to pair this type of siding with HardieTrim Boards to create a beautiful effect of board and batten construction.
  • HardieTrim Boards – Fiber cement siding can be complemented by these boards for a board and batten look. This material features unmatched durability, especially on the corners, windows, rakes, columns and friezes.
  • HardieSoffit Panels – These pre-cut soffit panels can eliminate the need for contractors to install separate strip or box vents and reduces the need to cut. These panels come in an assortment of vented and non-vented pieces in a variety of sizes.
