  • Residential Roofing Indianapolis

    The roof is arguably the most important part of the home; in fact, without a roof, a house can hardly be called a home. The roof provides comfort, security, and safety from the elements. So if the roof ends up with any kind of damage, it could end up compromising all of the qualities that the roof is supposed to provide. The roof is particularly susceptible to wear and tear since it is exposed to the elements, and in Indianapolis, those elements can be varied and unpredictable.


Why Fiber Cement Siding is Ideal for Indianapolis Homes

When it comes to choosing the right siding for your home, your decision will more than likely come down to three factors; durability, appearance, and affordability. Universal Roofing & Exteriors is proud to offer the best aspects of all three with fiber cement siding.


As the top siding contractor in Indianapolis, IN, we partner with James Hardie® to provide this premium product for your home. Here’s what makes it so ideal for the Indianapolis area:

Lasting Strength and Performance

Fiber cement is a blend of Portland cement, sand, and cellulose (wood) fibers. This recipe prevents the siding from cracking and warping, even in harsh climates. It can also outlast other siding materials since it resists many common hazards, including fire, wind, insects, and rain. It won’t rot no matter how wet it gets and it is termite-resistant thanks to its cement and sand content. This makes it ideal for the hot and humid climate of Indianapolis.

Low Maintenance Requirements

Since fiber-cement siding is so durable, it reduces both maintenance costs and effort. It offers the security of stonework with the unique look of wood or shingles, all at a fraction of the cost. Refinishing may be necessary after 15 years, but aside from that, you can enjoy its long life span without fuss. It is also less likely to end up in landfills than conventional siding.

Architectural Appeal

As the Indianapolis, IN gutters, windows, and siding experts, we aim to install products that will boost the visual appeal of your home. Our fiber cement siding comes in a variety of designs through the HardiePlank® and HardieShingle® siding options. Thanks to the James Hardie®Zone System, you can get a siding that can stand up to the climate in your region and still make your house stand out.
