Fiber cement siding has been around since the early twentieth century and began gaining in popularity in the U.S. in the mid-1980s. Engineered wood siding is the new arrival to the party, having been introduced to the siding installation market in the latter part of the twentieth century. Both fiber cement and engineered wood have shown themselves to be superior to wood in terms of looks and durability.
However, the two materials also demonstrate distinct differences that have allowed engineered wood to become a top choice for remodelers and homeowners alike.

Re-siding your home can completely transform its look and increase curb appeal exponentially, but completing a re-side is a big job and a significant investment. If you’ve never done it, it’s hard to know what to expect and how to prepare for a siding replacement.
Board and batten style siding is enjoying a resurgence as a way to create visual interest in an otherwise blank wall. Many believe board and batten style is a timeless look that can leave your home’s exterior with major curb appeal for years to come.
