Fiber Cement Siding – the Artistry of Installation

There’s an ARTISTRY to installing Exterior SIDING!

#1)       Do your homework. There’s an Artistry to install Exterior Fiber Cement Siding!

#2)       Research companies who produce Fiber Cement. – Pinterest is a great source for images as is Houzz. Google searches for photographs and companies who provide pre-finished Fiber Cement Siding should be easy to find. Research the company’s website. Check their photo gallery.

  1. Ask questions regarding their materials.
  2. How long have they been in business?
  3. Do they have a list of customers who you may call?
  4. Are there homes for you to drive by?
  5. Do they offer samples of their products?

#3)       Research Warranties closely on material and installation.

#4)       Research pre-finishers coating warranties.

Keep in mind the following:

  • Fiber Cement – is just that –it’s Cement.
  • ALL SIDES MUST BE SEALED – that’s why PREFINISHED is the best!
  • Research pre-finishing companies or take your time and make sure the Painter or Installer paints ALL SIDES to reduce moisture damage.
  • Once material has been received from the Pre-finishing company, make sure it’s covered and kept in a dry place until it’s installed. And as said above – make sure it remains dry, all edges and sides are covered.
  • Use matching caulk and touch up paint when and where needed.
  • Use protective eye-wear and a mask when cutting.
  • Fiber Cement should NOT touch the ground. Install it on a stone wall – brick wall, or a barrier wall that provides protection from the wet ground or a wet surface.
  • Maintenance is as simple as lightly spray washing.

See for yourself….

 

Installed properly – it looks AMAZINGLY like REAL WOOD – that’s the Artistry and it lasts for at 15 years or more before another coat needs to be applied.
