Although you may think the interior of a home is a dealbreaker or dealmaker, it’s actually the exterior curb appeal that often closes a sale. The exterior of your home is the first thing people notice and will likely judge your property by. More specifically, the choice of siding you put on your home has a significant effect on the overall value of your house. Increasing value by choosing specific siding materials is the smartest way to go, and when it comes to smart siding choices fiber cement comes out on top.
Special thanks to Allura USA for the infographic below that help homeowners better understand the benefits of fiber cement siding. Fiber cement siding is versatile, durable and stylish. It is incredibly long-lasting, with a lifespan of close to 50 years and requires very little maintenance from the homeowner to keep it looking beautiful. It is about as worry-free as you can get when it comes to weather-resistance and overall reliability. More importantly, fiber cement siding doesn’t just look beautiful but also provides an excellent Return on Investment.
According to Remodeling Magazine, fiber cement siding has an incredibly impressive 84.3% ROI for homeowners looking to eventually sell their home. When looking into average statistics a $14,000 fiber cement siding remodel will offer a resale value of almost $12,000. This puts fiber cement siding ahead of popular projects like a new garage or bedroom addition and kitchen remodels.
Fiber cement is an extremely attractive option for homeowners tired of dealing with traditional cracked, brittle vinyl or high-maintenance wood siding. This investment is worth even more to you as a homeowner if you plan on selling your home within the next 5 years or so. If you want to make your home more valuable and also reducing your home maintenance workload, you simply can’t go wrong investing in fiber cement siding.
