HardieShingle fiber cement versus cedar shake siding
Cedar siding is made with natural red or white cedar which is a tree native to the U.S. While cedar is popularly used for siding due to being one of the most durable natural woods, it doesn’t match the manufactured durability of fiber cement siding. Fiber cement siding consists of sand, cement, and tiny cellulose fibers that add up to make the ultimate construction material. Now the most popular siding material in the country, James Hardie invented fiber cement siding in the mid 80’s, and has continued to push it’s boundaries since. Cedar shake siding’s distinct wood grain looks great on both modern and rustic homes, but James Hardie’s state-of-the-art fiber cement siding perfectly mimics the texture and warmth of real wood with less maintenance, and less cost.
