5 Benefits of Fiber Cement Siding for Westchester County Homes

If you’re thinking about replacing your siding or are choosing an exterior for a new home, you’ll soon find yourself reading about all the different types of home siding materials available, including fiber cement. 

In this post, GIANT Siding and Windows will take you through the essential information about fiber cement to help you make an informed decision before choosing a siding type for your Westchester County home.

First off, fiber cement siding is a type of house cladding that is made out of a combination of wood pulp and cement. 

This gives it the appearance of traditional siding. However, fiber cement siding offers the durability of cement. Fiber cement siding provides thermal resistance that is much better than what metal or vinyl is able to provide. It is a great option for a homeowner who wants to be environmentally friendly.

Fiber cement siding is a durable, long-lasting and low-maintenance material that’s used on residential houses and some commercial projects.
