Keeping up with home maintenance is just as important on the outside as it is on the inside. Your home’s exterior is its first line of defense against the weather. If you’re investing in a siding upgrade, always hire an experienced professional. They have the correct tools and knowledge to do the job. They also have the expertise to troubleshoot any issues. This is especially important when installing fibre cement siding or cedar shakes.
Fibre Cement Siding
Fibre cement siding is a combination of cement, water, and cellulose fibers bound together. This combination makes a lasting product.
Fibre cement siding is a robust and durable material that will keep your home protected from extreme elements. It is fire, insect, and rot-resistant. Cement board siding is long-lasting and upkeep is minimal. For aesthetics, fibre cement can mimic the look of real wood or stone.
With correct installation, the siding can last 25 years or longer. Though not the cheapest option, it’s cost-effective for the longterm. Fibre cement siding is heavy, weighing about 2.5 pounds per square foot. It can get damaged easily if mishandled. Protect your investment and leave the installation to the pros.
Shakes are split from lumber logs using crafting tools or special machinery. They are long-lasting, durable, attractive, and can come with fire-resistant treatment. Cedar shakes are also weather-resistant and can survive strong winds, rain, hail, and snowstorms.
The shakes have an uneven appearance since each piece is hand-cut. Cedar shakes give a rustic look to your home’s exterior. They can be used for all or a section of your cladding. There are many benefits to use wood shakes. Wood is a natural insulator and is environmentally-friendly and recyclable.

Proper underlayment is installed beneath the shakes to ensure they’re water-tight. If not installed correctly, your home could lack proper protection. This is why hiring experienced professionals like Prism Exteriors Reno’s and Contracting is essential.
