Now that this product has been around for a few years, I'd like to hear from anyone who has had good or bad experiences with it. We're thinking of residing with fiber cement but don't know anyone in our area who has used it. Thanks!

Hi - I have this siding on my place, built new 10 years ago with this. I do not know what constitutes good siding from not good as I have never learned anything (or paid attention to anything!) about siding. However, I am in this site now looking to find help on how to repair this siding, and your post caught my eye.

Read my problem and maybe you will be able to judge the worthiness of this product.

I need to find out how to repair a piece of this - about 6" x 4" that has broken off. I'd like to know how to get it re-attached.

I do not want to replace the entire length of the siding, I just want to fix it.

It does break easily. It is not easy to put in any type of hanger in for outside nameplates, house #'s, whatever. Small niks in the siding appear to have become rusted, which I cannot explain.

On the other hand, after 10 years there are no issues of significance and it still does not need to be painted. So I guess from this perspective, it is pretty good.

Currently, a section on the side of my place is warped and the area is deteriorating. It needs to be fixed as well as what I am wanting to fix. I feel certain that it is a result of my furnace exhaust vent, blowing the air directly upwards. Where it is damaged is the path from this vent.

That area is warped, beginning to peel down deep enough to require replacement, not fixing. This is another issue I'll deal with another time!

By now you have probably already decided!
