For Re-Siding and New Construction
Many homes in Alpharetta are old enough to have siding that was manufactured with asbestos as a component. Although it sounded like a good idea at the time since it reduced the risk of fire, we now know how hazardous that can be. These homes are good candidates for upgrading to fiber cement. It is a safe alternative, while retaining all of the the fire-resistance. These upgrades should be done by a professional contractor because asbestos is a friable material; therefore, it becomes dangerous when disturbed and has to be handled and disposed of accordingly.
Ideally, new homes are great candidates for fiber cement, but any home will benefit. It has been shown that re-siding homes in the Alpharetta area with fiber cement nets a 25% better return when sold than if you were to have added a bathroom. It’s safe to say that it’s a home equity win. Installation times and methods are much the same as wood; the primary differences are that it must be handled a bit more carefully and dust masks should be worn when cutting to avoid breathing the silica dust.
Simply put, this home improvement is a great opportunity to boost both curb appeal and equity at the same time.
