What Makes Fiber Cement a Great Choice for Siding in New Jersey?
Siding material has undergone several innovations in the last 50 years. While we once wrapped our homes in wood siding, vinyl material has been used for the better part of the last few decades. And now there is a new, more advanced siding material on the market that outlasts and outperforms even the highest quality vinyl. That material is called fiber cement, and is used by James Hardie to create their durable, superior strength Fiber Cement Siding.
Fiber cement is a composite material, made up of sand, cement, and cellulose fibers. Unlike wood fiber cement will not crack or chip and it is not susceptible to fire, rot, or insects. Unlike vinyl, the color of fiber cement will never fade and the material itself will not dent or crack in even the harshest weather. When it comes to siding materials, fiber cement is the strongest, most durable, and the most customizable material on the market.
Energy Saving Properties
Energy efficiency is a hot button item for homeowners across the country, and many turn to fiber cement siding in order to lower their monthly energy bills. While wood siding tends to leave gaps that leak energy and vinyl can often be a good conductor of heat, fiber cement is specifically designed to counteract all the elements that lead to low energy efficiency. In fact, with James Hardie’s HardieZone technology, your siding will be designed specifically for New Jersey’s climate and energy usages.
The Beauty of Fiber Cement
Fiber cement can be manipulated to resemble nearly any other siding material, giving you the option of creating the aesthetic of wood shake, plank, or even stone siding without sacrificing strength or energy efficiency.
