Benefits of Fiber Cement Siding
There are plenty of reasons to love fiber cement siding for your upgraded exterior. Let’s take a closer look at just a few of the benefits of choosing this material for your siding replacement project:
- It’s designed to withstand the elements, specifically made to handle our cold and wet weather here in Southeastern Pennsylvania
- It’s resistant to damage from pests like woodpeckers, termites, and other wood-boring insects
- It won’t rot or grow mold and mildew, making it a great choice for wet climates like ours
- It’s a versatile product, available in countless colors and designs
- It requires very little maintenance to keep it looking great
- It’s a non-combustible material, so it won’t contribute fuel in the event of a fire
Fiber Cement Siding Stain Options
One of the reasons we love fiber cement siding is that it’s available in a number of different styles. However, if you can’t quite find what you’re looking for or you want a different look a couple of years after it’s installed, you have the option to stain your siding.
The best stain for fiber cement siding is one that’s semitransparent. Before applying the stain, make sure you know how to clean fiber cement siding properly. You can use a hose and a gentle brush to scrub away dirt and debris before getting started.
Once the siding is completely dried, you can apply the stain using a paintbrush or roller, allowing it to fully dry before applying subsequent coats.
