LOW-MAINTENANCE FIBRE CEMENT SIDING
If you are looking for a long-lasting and appealing siding option available in a range of styles and colours, consider fibre cement from Onit Roofing & Exteriors. Fibre cement comes in a smooth or wood-grained finish and is often used as a lower maintenance and more durable alternative to cedar shingles and shakes, wood clapboard, stucco and other materials.
Why Choose Fibre Cement?
The benefits of fibre cement siding are many. As a low-maintenance solution, fibre cement will only require paint touch-ups and caulking every few years. The amount of maintenance will depend on your exact geographic location and the weather conditions you experience. This product also provides resistance to termites, fire, wind and hail.
Available throughout home improvement centres and lumber yards, fibre cement needs to be stored and handled properly to ensure a successful installation. One of the most widely known manufacturers is James Hardie® which offers three types of products—HardiePlank®, HardieShingle® and HardiePanel®. Many manufacturers guarantee product performance with warranties, such as the 30-year limited warranty offered by James Hardie®.
