Kramer Construction offers both Fiber Cement and Vinyl Siding options.

Fiber Cement Siding Installation In Mount Pleasant & Charleston, SC

Fiber cement siding is a popular alternative to traditional materials, and is made from a combination of cement, sand, and cellulose fibers. Fiber cement siding can imitate the appearance of wooden siding, clapboard, or shingles, making it very attractive to homeowners who want the look of wood shingles, but wish to avoid the splitting, cracking, and annual paint job that wood requires.

Benefits of Fiber Cement Siding

Fiber cement siding offers a wide variety of design options for texture, color, and shape. It gets high marks in terms of durability, exterior wear and fire rating. It’s also insect proof because there is no organic substance in the material to support insects. If you get pre-primed siding from the factory, the siding is usually protected from moisture when a final coat of paint is applied. Best of all, the installation cost is often considerably less than having an exterior of stone, wood, or other natural siding alternative installed.
