Fiber Cement Siding

Fiber cement is a siding material made out of 3 ingredients 1-cellulose (wood fiber) 2- Sand and 3- cement. It is an excellent product for use on the exterior of your home because it does not rot  or crack like cedar wood and it will last much longer than wood for a lower initial price . The other major factor is that it looks good and is paintable.
