Why Choose Fiber Cement Siding in Bluemont
Fiber cement has a variety of benefits that can increase the value and safety of your home.
In an emergency, safety is your number one concern. Fiber cement will not ignite when exposed to a flame. High winds from hurricanes or storms are less likely to affect the material as well. You can trust fiber cement siding to keep your home as safe as possible.
Termites, carpenter ants and bees can cause damage to your wooden siding, but fiber cement is unattractive to insects and birds such as woodpeckers. This quality helps you save money on repairs and exterminators. Natural scenery like Arlington Forest creates a breeding ground for pests, so keeping your home safe is essential.
Fiber cement siding has a lifetime of over 50 years. What’s more, James Hardie backs their product with a 30-year warranty. We recommend maintaining your siding by removing dirt and excess pollen every six months to one year. Gentle cleansing with a hose or mild pressure washer and a siding brush is sufficient.
ColorPlus technology bakes color onto each piece of siding, so your paint resists fade after light exposure. While vinyl loses its brightness after a few summers, fiber cement stays looking like new. ColorPlus adhesive comes with a 15-year warranty, so you can enjoy your exterior for many years.
You can choose from a few designs, such as HardieBoard, HardieShingle and HardiePlank. Each cut can help you achieve your aesthetic, whether you’re aiming for a cottage-style or rustic theme. You can also mix and match products, using shingles to highlight one area and vertical boards for the rest of your home.
