What Exactly Is Fiber Cement Siding?
Fiber cement siding was invented in the late 19th century and patented by an Austrian industrialist named Ludwig Hatschek in 1901. Hatschek discovered that when he mixed cement and asbestos fibers and added water, he could create a flexible product that could be pressed onto a sheet. This product, originally called Eternit, which means “everlasting”, quickly gained popularity for its durability and fire resistance.
Due to the health risks associated with asbestos, though, manufacturers switched to using cellulose fibers in the 1980s. Modern fiber cement has maintained much of the durability and versatility of the original asbestos-cement product but without the associated health risks.
Today, this type of siding is revered for its strength and durability, emulating the beauty of traditional wood without the susceptibility to decay, fire, and insects. In fact, this type of siding can be crafted to emulate a variety of other materials beyond just wood – including stucco and even shake.
The Evolution of Fiber Cement Siding
Over the years, fiber cement siding has carved its path from obscurity to become a mainstream choice for siding, thanks to its unmatched durability, versatility, and aesthetic appeal. Initially, it was a material praised for its practical benefits – being fireproof and robust against decay. However, as architectural trends evolved, so did the appeal of this type of siding. Today, it is the material of choice for those desiring a blend of classic appeal and modern durability.
