Fiber Cement Siding Styles

By Karen Lawson
Fiber Cement Siding Styles

Fiber cement siding comes in a variety of textures, colors, shapes, and sizes. And, each style has attributes to make your house unique, while perfectly fitting your tastes. The three main fiber cement siding styles include stucco, regular wood, and cedar. These styles can make a tremendous difference on your home's appearance.

The Main Three Fiber Cement Siding Styles

Stucco is considered a look for the rich and famous. But now, you can get fiber cement siding that gives you the same look, at a much better price. This appearance is accomplished by installing large sheets of fiber cement siding, as opposed to smaller shingled pieces. The look of stucco is achieved for a portion of the cost of real stucco.

Most people agree that houses made of wood look nice and cozy. However, the maintenance on these homes can be quite time consuming, with wood homes having to be re-painted every five to seven years. However, with fiber cement siding, you can get the same wood look without the necessary maintenance. This wood look is accomplished by using either horizontal or vertical lap fiber cement siding. Fiber cement siding also has a wood grained finish that makes most people look twice before realizing it is not real wood.

Finally, the last fiber cement siding style is that of cedar. Cedar is a popular look that is also somewhat expensive and a bit high maintenance. However, fiber cement siding comes in shingles that greatly resemble cedar shingles. These shingles are virtually maintenance free, unlike the true cedar shingles.

There are a variety of fiber cement styles to choose from. Each has distinct features that make them unique, adding flavor and style to anyone's home.
