As an exterior siding
Fiber cement boards have gained substantial popularity as an ideal siding material. This is because they are far sturdier than the other alternatives such as wood siding and vinyl siding and more economical than stone, stucco and brick. Apart from the fact that they are highly defiant to ultraviolet rays, rain, heat, salt spray, they are also impassable by birds or insects. Further, these cement boards are resistant to temperature changes, and require minimum maintenance.
For tiled walls
Fiber cement boards can be also used inside the house. They are perfect for tile backing boards, especially in kitchens and bathrooms. As this cement board is water resistant, it is ideal for tile backing material in wet areas of the building. They are also resistant to mold and damp and do not go kaput in case of constant moisture.
