Top-of-the-Line Fiber Cement Siding Available for Orlando, FL, Homeowners
Morgan Exteriors is pleased to install Hardie Board fiber cement siding at homes throughout Orlando, Florida, and surrounding areas. If you’ve been researching siding options, you’ve no doubt heard of fiber cement siding. But, what exactly is it? Fiber cement generally includes a mix of wood pulp, cement, water, and some type of filler (typically fly ash or silica sand). The wood pulp offers impressive flexibility and resistance, making fiber cement a great option for siding. The cement binds everything together, and the water dissolves the wood pulp and activates the cement.
What Are the Advantages of Fiber Cement Siding?
Fiber cement siding wasn’t invented until the mid-1980s, so homeowners may not be as familiar with it as they are with wood and aluminum siding. However, fiber cement siding offers a number of advantages over other siding options, particularly wood siding. Unlike wood, fiber cement resists moisture infiltration, so you won’t need to worry about rotting or any issues caused by repeated swelling. And, unlike wood, fiber cement is non-combustible and won’t ignite even when exposed to a direct flame. What’s more, while you may have to worry about woodpeckers, termites, and other pests with wood siding, they won’t be a concern with fiber cement siding.
