Fiber Cement Siding
Among the fastest growing choices in siding materials is fiber cement. Fiber cement siding is a manufactured mix of cement, sand and cellulose fiber that is treated for additional strength, stability and durability. It can be formed and shaped to resemble wood, yet is resistant to weather and insects, won’t rot or split, and holds its color for many years. Fiber cement siding panels can be installed horizontally like traditional siding, or vertically for a different look. Fiber cement is also available as shingles that look like wood shakes but are more durable and easier to maintain.
Wood clapboard or wood shingles are traditional, natural looking siding materials that have been in use for hundreds of years. Wood looks beautiful, although it requires more maintenance than other siding materials, and is susceptible to termites, pest and wood rot. Wood can be painted or stained. Although some homeowners prefer to leave wood untreated to age naturally, it is recommended that a protective coating be applied in Michigan’s harsh climate.
At one time aluminum was the most common replacement siding material, but has fallen out of favor in recent years. Although durable and attractive, aluminum siding can fade and is susceptible to dents when struck. Aluminum does not provide any insulation properties in cold weather.
