Building a home is a huge investment. Choosing the right materials to fit both your budget and your dreams may seem like a daunting task. Thanks to the increasing use of fiber cement lap siding. Today’s home construction market offers a way to create the look you want and stick to the budget you have.

When choosing the look for the exterior of your dream home, you want to find the best siding you can. Fiber Cement Lap Siding combines beauty and durability with a cost that won’t leave a gaping hole in your budget. What’s more it comes unpainted, allowing you to pick the look you’ve been dreaming of while paying the affordable price you’re hoping for.

Fiber cement siding is a mixture of cement, wood pulp and sand. It’s designed to protect the exterior of your home from the damage weather conditions cause. Fiber cement siding fits into any climate, but performs especially well in hot and humid areas thanks to its resistance to: rot, fire, termites and other insect.

Durability is its other main asset. The unique combination of materials allows it to be easily repainted with water-based paint, and since it is designed to have minimal expansion and contraction the paint remains on the siding longer. This means less need to repaint. Its protective qualities keep weather damage to a minimum as well.

Fiber cement lap siding is one of the many high quality components that are included in every HiLine Home. HiLine builds affordable homes that last by using fiber cement siding and fiber cement trim on the corners and around windows. If you’re ready for a home of your own, please contact us today.
