Fibre cement as an exterior cladding material is very durable, low maintenance and easy to work with on-site, especially when compared to other cladding materials. Fibre cement cladding is also extremely durable due to its water resistance and because it does not rot, warp or crack, even when subject to high heat or extreme cold. 

It is also resistant to termites, rodents and other pests. In addition, fibre cement board is non-combustible and is, therefore, fire-resistant and will not ignite when exposed to fire or extreme heat.
