This can depend on a number of factors, including where you live, the type of home you own, and the product you choose. However, we’ve found that Nichiha fiber cement siding has affordable prices compared to other brands. It will usually cost between $7.5-10 per sq.ft. for the materials and installation.
Fiber cement panels from this brand are typically made from a combination of recycled materials, cement, silica, fly ash, and wood fibers. The brand puts in a lot of effort to be more environmentally-friendly than other brands. They do this by using less silica and more fly ash in their fiber cement formulation.
Their siding was originally made in Japan, since it was founded there in 1956. However, the company expanded to the United States in 1998, establishing headquarters in Johns Creek, GA as Nichiha USA. In 2007, they built a manufacturing plant in Macon, GA, where they continue to make products today.
It may depend on the product you choose, but their architectural panels tend to have a thin profile (typically ⅝ inches thick). Contractors also usually report that Nichi Panels and Shakes are thicker and stronger than other fiber cement brands.
People who are looking for a customizable and contemporary look should choose Nichiha architectural wall panels. The product is highly customizable, low maintenance, and cost-effective. The problem is that it’s currently more difficult to find in the U.S.
