How Fiber Cement Performs for a Lifetime


You’ve heard about the benefits of replacing your home’s windows with newer, more advanced windows that are made with materials that are stronger and designed to be more energy efficient. But will you really see any benefit from an investment in new windows? The short answer is “Yes!”

Here are the top six reasons why replacing your windows is a good investment in the future of your home and family.


  2. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a typical home can lose 30% or more of the energy it takes to heat and cool the home through inefficient doors and windows. That means almost one-third of the money you spend on energy bills is wasted. Sealing off this energy loss with thermally efficient replacement windows is a long-term way to reduce your monthly utility bills, and to keep energy use at a minimum. Good for the environment, good for your wallet!


  4. If you get chilly enough to put on a sweater inside your home during the winter, the culprit may be drafty windows. Do you ever notice your drapes moving gently in the breeze, even though your windows are closed? That is cold air seeping in through your window glass and frame. Do your windows get coated with condensation or fog up? That’s chilly air transferring in through the glass. You won’t have to put up with these uncomfortable conditions once you install energy efficient replacement windows.

  6. New windows offer great options in frame styles and materials that can greatly improve the aesthetic value of your home both inside and out. Most replacement windows also offer more expansive glass areas for a bigger and better view of the world.


    2. Modern windows are much easier to operate than the old wood-frame or aluminum windows that rattled all winter and got stuck in the summer’s humidity. Advanced materials ensure smooth operation for years and years.

  3. Vinyl, fiberglass or composite frame windows do not need to be scraped and painted every few years. They retain their great looks with just a simple wipe down. Plus, many new windows feature easy-to-use tilt-in frames that make cleaning a snap.


  5. Installing quality windows is consistently ranked among the best home improvement values in terms of return on investment. New windows make your home more attractive and appealing.

For hundreds of years wood was the siding material of choice for residential properties in the U.S. After World War II, when aluminum was once again widely available, the popularity of aluminum siding soared. But it was not until the late 1950s when vinyl siding was introduced the market. With a wider selection of colors and textures and an easy to maintain surface, vinyl siding outperformed wood and aluminum siding, becoming the most popular product in the market. 

But that has changed in recent years. Starting in the late 1980s, fiber cement, a new, stronger siding product began to be introduced across the United States. Pioneered by Australian company James Hardie®, fiber cement quickly proved itself by outperforming vinyl siding in all important measures. Fiber cement quickly become the leading choice for residential siding across the country, to the point where over 8 million American homes are now protected by rugged, durable fiber cement panels.

What makes fiber cement so good? Comprised of a composite of recycled sand, cement, and cellulose materials, fiber cement is an extremely strong, thermal and sound resistant material, which makes it perfect for home siding.

Fiber cement siding is thicker, more durable, and more customizable than vinyl. While vinyl siding can be damaged by hail, tree limbs, and other flying debris, the hard finish of fiber cement resists rotting, warping, cracking, hail, and winds up to 150 mph. Fiber cement is also fire resistant, while vinyl and wood are both susceptible to fire damage.

For homeowners whose homes are situated in a wooded area, fiber cement siding is both insect and mold resistant. Wood siding in particular can be affected by termites and other insects, as well as toxic mold. But fiber cement is virtually impervious to these natural factors.

While vinyl, aluminum and wooden siding are still available options for homeowners in Texas, fiber cement siding has proven its ability to add lasting value to any home on which it is installed. Fiber cement provides all the benefits of traditional siding while outperforming all the rest.
