For those of you who may be considering residing your older wooden homes or embarking on new construction projects, cement board siding stands as a bona-fide wood substitute.

Having worked over 40 years in the construction industry, I am no stranger to the beauty of wooden homes. Wood products, such as, western cedar and pine, tend to be the consumer’s first choice. As the market demand increases, so does the price point of these materials. Consequentially, wood products are now unrealistically expensive for the average home owner. In addition to such steep costs, wood siding requires constant maintenance to avoid decay, infestation, and depreciation.

To combat the negatives of wood siding, alternatives began popping up left and right in the marketplace. Only one has consistently proven to be worthy of replicating the quality and appearance of true wood- cement board siding.

Unpainted Cement Board Siding

Beyond offering a realistically traditional appearance, cement board products bring a few distinct advantages over wood. This siding does not shrink, crack, or rot and often costs less. When you paint a house with cement board siding, it lasts around 15 years maintenance free. Over time the home owner will experience astronomical savings in comparison to the 3-5 year painting cycle standard for wooden homes.

Furthermore, cement board siding is vermin proof. This means that squirrels, carpenter bees, woodpeckers, termites, and other pests will no longer serve as unwelcome guests in your living space.

Lastly, cement board siding allows you to take full control of the color selection of your home. Whereas most wood products are limited to a specific range of color stains.
