Posted by Peter Martino on Wed, Aug 10, 2011
One of the most common misconceptions about Everlast is that it's a type of cement board siding.  Cement siding has become a popular alternative over the past 15 years or so.  However Everlast is not cement board siding.  Everlast is actually made from a proprietery composite blend that doesn't include any cement or wood fiber.  Unfortunately it's extremely difficult to see the difference between the two products without handling them in person.  You might be wondering are their benefits to Everlast over cement board siding? Below are a few comparisons of both products.  You be the judge.
