If you’re considering new siding, it’s important to select a material that’s not only durable and but that can also compete with the harsh weather we experience here in Alexandria. Fiber cement also adds value to your home, keeping you more comfortable throughout all seasons.
We use and install James Hardie® fiber cement siding, and we enjoy working with it for many reasons:
1. Wide Variety of Trim and Accessories
Fiber cement is available in several sizes and styles. Choose from planks that have either wood-grained or smooth finishes. You can get them in widths of between four and 12 inches, which means it’s super easy to match existing siding if you are adding onto your Alexandria home. Add overhangs of vertical grooves and soffit panels, trim and other accessories to add charm and character to your home.
2. Great for All Climates
Fiber cement siding goes well in any climate, especially hot, humid regions. It also resists cold, snow and rain. Fiber cement won’t succumb to moisture like wood will, and termites won’t invade due to its composition of cement and sand. Live near the ocean? Rest easy knowing fiber cement resists salt air and high humidity levels. In fact, the James Hardie Fiber Cement siding we install is specifically formulated for Virginia climate, perfect for your home in Northern Virginia.
3. Low Maintenance
There’s little upkeep required with fiber cement products, so you don’t have to worry about cleaning, maintaining and repairing your siding.
4. 30-Year Warranty
James Hardie Fiber Cement siding is engineered material, which means you get greater consistency in the quality and finish of every board, shingle or trim. Protect your investment with James Hardie, which offers a 30-year warranty – something you won’t find anywhere else.
5. Optimal Color Durability
Not only does fiber cement come in a wide selection of colors and designs, it resists fading and retains its color throughout the years.
6. Adds Property Value and Curb Appeal
If you’re trying to choose between vinyl and fiber cement for your siding, consider this: the ROI on fiber cement siding is better than vinyl, at 83 percent. While you will spend more initially on fiber cement, keep in mind you’re getting a higher quality product with promises of a longer-lasting lifespan. Fiber cement is also attractive to prospective buyers, increasing the curb appeal of your property in Northern Virginia.
Fiber cement is a solid choice when you want a beautiful, rugged, durable surface made of technologically advanced material. Best of all, you get the traditional look of natural wood siding without all the maintenance and rot issues.
