Like wood siding, fiber cement siding may be painted any color, offering homeowners a multitude of style and design possibilities.
While fiber cement siding is most often designed to replicate the look of wood siding, it may also be designed with a smooth finish, and with the look of stucco or masonry.

Installing fiber cement siding
Fiber cement siding is typically less expensive to install than natural wood siding, but more expensive than vinyl siding. It is heavier than wood and vinyl sidings, which makes installation slightly more demanding. Joints require proper sealing to prevent caulking wear and cracking, which invites fungus and mold growth. Fiber cement siding maintenance includes regular debris removal and spray cleaning, as with any other siding, and re-painting approximately every 15-20 years.
