Composite Siding vs. Fiber Cement

Why composite siding is superior

Cellular Composite Siding: The Superior Option

Fiber cement siding has been all the craze recently, but it isn’t the most premium siding option out there. It’s cellular composite siding, and you can see the difference in real homes. Composite siding is able to offer a level of curb appeal that fiber cement just can’t match. It’s no slouch when it comes to practicality either; composite siding outperforms fiber cement when it comes to durability, energy-efficiency, and weather protection.
