Fiber Cement Siding

James Hardie Fiber Cement SidingFiber Cement siding has been on the market for over twenty years. Cedar siding takes such a beating in our climate and it requires frequent staining and maintenance to keep it looking good. Although not a maintenance-free product, fiber cement siding offers the homeowner a similar look to cedar siding with much less maintenance.


There are three major manufacturers of fiber cement siding, however James Hardie originally invented this product and is by far the leader and innovator of this product line.

James Hardie produces their cement board with a proprietary Color Plus factory applied paint finish. The board is warranted for 30 years non-prorated with a non prorated 15 year paint finish. It is the best warranty in the fiber cement business backed by the leader. Homeowners must make sure that they use only a factory approved associate contractor to assure proper installation.
