With climate change hanging over our heads it is important to endorse green efforts and products. Thankfully, James Hardie offers fiber cement siding, made from locally sourced, raw materials, that are low in toxicity. With James Hardie you do not have sacrifice beauty or value to “go green”.

The durable fiber cement material allows for low maintenance during the life of the board, which is under warranty for 30 years.
