For homeowners that want the look of wood but do not want the hassles and costs associated with it, fiber-cement siding is a great alternative. This product is available from several manufacturers such as John Hardie and in a variety of textures that are said to provide the appearance of wood. Fiber-cement siding is more durable than wood, it is termite-resistant, water-resistant, non-combustible, and warranted to last 50 years. As an Award Winning Asheville NC Custom Home Builder that loves building fine custom arts & crafts style homes we have been using fiber cement siding for decades due to its durability and high quality finished appearance.
Fiber-cement siding is composed of cement, sand, and cellulose fiber that has been autoclaved (cured with pressurized steam) to increase its strength and dimensional stability. The fiber is added as reinforcement to prevent cracking. The planks come in a variety of widths and have a great finished look whether installed by it self or combined with natural stone on a beautiful mountain home. Advantage Development Co. is an Asheville NC Custom Home Builder making dreams a reality for home owners since 1990.
