When it's time for new siding, homeowners around the Minneapolis and St. Paul area have many choices.  One material that's excellent for our climate is fiber cement siding from The James Hardie Company.  Made from a mixture of cement and wood pulp, fiber cement is long lasting, affordable and beautiful for many years to come. There are many types of siding out there, but many of them have their flaws. These flaws will affect the performance of the siding that you choose. When it comes to fiber cement siding, you get many more pros than cons, making it one of the top siding choices to go with when choosing what should protect the outside of your home here in Minnesota.

Earlier Siding Options

Wood and aluminum were the first manufactured siding options to show up on the market when homes were starting to be built. Both options provide a strong and durable look and feel to the home. However, they both had a lot of maintenance and problems with staying intact. These problems became some of the biggest issues, to where manufacturers wanted to find a way to have a more durable siding option to go with.

New Advancements in Home Siding

Vinyl was the next siding product to come out. This was a relatively inexpensive way to protect the outside of the home. It also came in many different styles and looks. It protected the outside of the home, required minimal maintenance and looked nice. With vinyl siding, many people skipped getting the wood siding that was once used the most often.  Vinyl siding is still a popular choice for homeowners seeking an economical siding product.

Fiber Cement Siding 

Since the time of vinyl siding, fiber cement siding has made its way to the scene. Not only does this wrap up the benefits of all three of the previous choices, but there are less cons than all of them. It is durable, strong and provides the right look and feel that you’re after when siding your home.
