When homeowners begin the process of re-siding their home, they often start by selecting their preferred siding material choice. Careful consideration is given as they weigh between cost, durability and design appeal. Many would prefer the custom look of cedar shingles but don’t want to deal with its extra maintenance needs, or would love a stucco finish but can’t afford its high price tag. At Custom Installations, we often suggest our clients consider fiber cement siding. It can offer many of the benefits homeowners are looking for in their siding needs. Read on to learn more about why fiber cement can be a great siding solution.
