Fiber-cement siding is durable and low-maintenance. Fine Homebuilding has produced an informative, short video for tips on Cutting Fiber Cement With a Circular Saw.

There’s some debate about how eco-friendly fiber cement is.

But the final product should last a long time, so it’s a good option for siding.
