Cement board is a popular choice for exterior cladding and names we carry including Allura (formerly Maxitile) and James Hardie have been around for decades. It has a long-standing history as an affordable, attractive siding option and comes in a variety of textures and colors. The appearance of the boards is made to mimic many other siding materials including wood lap siding and shakes and shingles. Other great benefits for property owners include longevity, fire resistance and storm resistance. These features of cement board make it a low-maintenance, long-lasting siding option you’ll enjoy for years to come.
