Loveland homes can experience significant environmental concerns ranging from high UV radiation to below freezing temperatures. While it’s always important to consider the different threats that are specific to each state, it’s even more crucial in Colorado considering all the temperature extremes and severe weather we experience. When it comes to replacing your home’s siding, there are so many different siding options for you to research. Prioritizing durability can help you find a great long-term investment. So, what’s the difference between fiber cement siding and engineered wood composite siding?

The Benefits of Fiber Cement Siding and Engineered Wood Composite Siding for Your Loveland Home

  • Durability: When it comes to durability, both are superior options when compared to vinyl siding and authentic wood or cedar siding. Both siding options should provide protection against severe weather, impact, moisture rot, termite decay, and more. However, fiber cement does offer the benefit of being fire retardant and can provide a longer product lifespan.
  • Aesthetics: Both options are highly versatile and can be used to achieve the look of your dream home. Fiber cement and engineered wood siding manufacturers offer various architectural design options that can complement any existing home.
  • Pricing: Fiber cement siding is usually more expensive than engineered wood siding since it offers higher durability and can provide lower maintenance requirements.
