Fiber cement products exhibit superior properties such as high durability, resistance to water, flexibility, versatility, and thermal insulation. They are preferred by professional builders, homeowners, and contractors over asbestos cement products. In addition, these products have low maintenance cost, and is mainly used in siding, roofing, trimming, and other areas.
