Fiber cement roofing sheets are made of portland cement, fly ash, organic fiber, and fillers which are used to further reinforce the material and improve its durability. Finally, water is used to bind these components together, and allow the fibre cement to harden. A small quantity of chemical additives is also included to aid in this process and bolster the material’s strength. Most of fiber cement’s composition is not flammable.The cement composition also makes the material immune to insects and rot, and because there are no overlapping seams, mold and mildew cannot grow.
