Cost Considerations

Fiber cement is currently recouping 84% of its cost when the property is sold, making it a good value home improvement. Special insulation is made for fiber cement siding, which adds to the initial cost but should lower energy bills.

Costs vary greatly by region (and even by zip code). To get free estimates from local contractors, please indicate yours.
