The company’s commitment to sustainability begins with a unique manufacturing process reliant on natural, renewable raw materials – sand, Portland cement and cellulose fiber. As the first to recognize the need for climate-specific cladding, James Hardie siding and trim are uniquely Engineered for Climate® to keep homes looking beautiful longer despite what nature brings. (http://www.jameshardie.com/Why-Hardie/Performance-and-Durability) Minnesotans have come to appreciate their uncompromising performance and proven track record through years of wet or freezing conditions.
Green homes and renewable energy expert, Dan Chiras, recommends the use of fiber cement siding, citing how it “outlasts its competitors — often by decades — because it resists many common hazards, including fire, wind, insects, and rain.” Due in part to its durability, there are not yet any recycling programs in place for the material. However, according to Mr. Chiras, “it is an inert material that, if ultimately sent to a landfill, should not endanger the environment.”
