Customers searching for pre-finished fiber cement often ask, “what are the advantages of fiber cement siding?” Lasting durability and fire, wind and insect resistance are some of the best features of pre-finished fiber cement siding, making it significantly less maintenance than wood siding. Less maintenance is the number one reason consumers select fiber cement siding. The pre-finished fiber cement offered by Carolina Colortones includes these warranties on the finish or coating only—in addition to the manufacturer product/material warranties provided by each brand:

  • One coat of paint includes a 15- year warranty
  • Two coats of paint has a warranty of up to 30 years
  • Carolina Colortones’ unique finishes of Woodland Standard, Woodland Premium, Rustic or Seaside Series coating options are covered by a 15- year warranty

Depending on the fiber cement product you choose–James Hardie, Allura or Nichiha, each product/material warranty differs. If you choose James Hardie, their warranty is 30 years. If you choose Allura or Nichiha fiber cement products, their product/material warranty is 50 years.

When researching these products, people will often ask, “what is the difference in price?” The price varies depending upon on product you choose, size and style. Another variable to consider is what type of coating/finish you would like to have. Types of finishes/coatings range in price  depending on custom color, how many coats of paint or if you choose the unique Carolina Colortones finishes. Carolina Colortones’ coating option is a 3 or 4 coat process and offers the appearance of real wood.

The cost for  all Fiber Cement Siding manufacturers ranges from $2.27 – $3.60 per square foot based on 8 ¼” Lap siding, coated or painted.
