Calculate the Remodeling ROI on Fiber Cement SidingFeb 18, 2016
Many of our customers come to us to discuss vinyl siding for their home. It makes sense. We install vinyl siding on homes throughout the Kansas City area—because it’s a great way to protect your home and reduce the maintenance. We tell these homeowners that adding foam-backed vinyl siding is rated as the third best remodeling project in terms of the return on investment it delivers at resale, across the entire central portion of the United States, according to Remodeling magazine’s annual “Cost Vs. Value Report”.
“What’s the first one?” they usually ask. “Number one is fiber-cement siding,” we tell them. Quite often, the next question is, “What’s fiber-cement siding?” Fiber-cement siding is a composite made of a blend of wood pulp and cement. It can be shaped to have the appearance of wood, stucco, stone, or brick, and offers the durability and low maintenance of masonry. Fiber-cement siding resists fire, rot, and termites. Like other siding choices, it is manufactured in sheets and then made into clapboard.
According to the “2015 Cost Vs. Value Report”, installing fiber-cement siding on your home delivers 84.3% ROI at resale. At Johnson County Siding & Windows, we choose James Hardie fiber-cement siding products. They have a long history of both success and innovation, with a broad range of styles and color options. They stand behind their fiber-cement siding, with a 30-year product warranty and a 15-year warranty on the paint.
We invite you to consider fiber-cement for your home’s siding. Not only will you get an impressive boost to the curb appeal, but the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re protecting your investment. Contact us to learn more about your siding options.
