Cement Board Siding
Cement fiberboard by its nature is resistant to rot, fire damage, insect infestation, nesting birds and overall decomposition and decay. It is attached either by means of a clip-in type system or a product like Home Slicker. Home Slicker also happens to work to resist water damage from rain. This commercial siding comes in a wide range of dimensions and can be installed to look like stucco, concrete, cedar siding, or shingles. It can also be applied in bigger panels for a more modernist look as well! Cement fiberboard also comes in smooth or wood grain finishes. If you prefer a more classical look, you can choose one of those. Some people have it installed in a pattern of overlapping horizontal boards, vertically, or in large sheets. A large number of suppliers sell panels with popular colors baked into the very material of the panels. Because of this, cement fiberboard commercial siding requires very little upkeep and maintenance other than the occasional touch of paint. If you change your mind, it is a simple matter of applying a fresh coat of paint to the panels which are already installed on your building.
