How Long Does Fiber Cement Siding Last?

How Long Does Fiber Cement Siding Last?Some home improvement projects, such as adding a new deck or sunroom, may excite you as you envision a new way to enjoy your home. However, other home improvements are born less out of desire and more out of necessity. Siding replacement is a good example, particularly if your siding is pockmarked with damage and growing mold. Replacing your home’s siding is a big project. It’s understandable, then, why you may want to upgrade to a more durable material, like fiber cement siding, to avoid having to replace your siding again for the foreseeable future.

Formulated for Long-Lasting Performance

James Hardie® fiber cement siding is known in the industry as one of the most durable options. Where vinyl and wood siding can fail due to weathering—the former has a tendency to crack in cold weather, and the latter can buckle and warp in high humidity—fiber cement siding stubbornly resists fading, warping, mold and mildew growth, and impact resistance. And it holds no interest for termites and woodpeckers.

Warrantied for 30 Years

Due to its superior performance, fiber cement siding can resist damage and look great for decades. In fact, it comes with a 30-year warranty but can last for much longer with the proper maintenance.

ColorPlus® Technology

For further assurance that new fiber cement siding will maintain its like-new appearance long into the future, choose ColorPlus® technology. With this option, the new color you like best for the exterior of your home will be baked into the material. This process makes the siding virtually immune to fading, chipping, cracking, and peeling. Plus, it comes with an additional 15-year warranty covering the paint and labor.
