Once you make the decision to re-side your home, it’s essential to choose the best siding material for the project. Many homeowners are discovering the significant benefits of fiber-cement siding. It’s the perfect siding solution for new homes, barns, garages, or any structure that needs replacement siding.
What Is Fiber-Cement Siding?
Man-made from a composite of cellulose fibers, sand, and cement, fiber-cement siding is constructed by the pressing together of those components to form various styles of planks and shingles. The result is a remarkably durable siding product that outlasts most of the competition by decades. You can choose from numerous colors and styles of siding, including designs that resemble wood clapboards, cedar shingles, and stucco. Martino Home Improvements, servicing the Detroit Metro Area of Michigan, are expert installers of James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding.

The appearance, on a Cape Cod, colonial style, or historic home, is one of elegance. The refined wood-like appearance increases the visual value of your property and adds plenty of curb appeal.
Fiber-cement siding is not bothered by termites, pest, and birds. It is also resistant to rotting, cracking, and warping during extreme weather conditions. The siding you choose to use on your home can increase or decrease the amount of damage a fire causes. James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding does not ignite when exposed to extreme heat or direct flame. This allows time for residents to leave and fire-fighters to arrive before major damage occurs.
