Even though fiber cement exterior siding is a low-maintenance product, it still requires some attention to retain its visual appeal. Insect nests and collected dirt can easily be taken off by power washing. Examination of caulked joints between butt ends of boards, windows, and entrance doors is encouraged each twelve months. Gaps that open when caulk gets away can simply be stuffed with a premium quality acrylic, latex, or urethane caulk. A well looked after fiber cement house siding product commonly needs painting every seven to fifteen years.
