Only our products are Engineered for Climate® to perform beautifully, despite what nature brings. Unlike cedar and wood-based products, our unique formulations resist the effects of humidity and moisture, damage from mold and provide superior dimensional stability to resist shrinking, swelling and cracking. Artisan siding will protect your exteriors from damage caused by years of blistering sun, ice storms, cool and wet conditions, sea air, high winds and more. And while wood siding is susceptible to damage from pests and fire, fiber cement won’t be eaten by animals or insects and is fire resistant.
James Hardie is committed to helping you build better, more sustainable projects. Our commitment to sustainability begins with a unique manufacturing process reliant on natural, sustainable raw materials that are low in toxicity. At least 75% of the raw materials used are locally sourced, while our nine manufacturing facilities reduce the environmental impact caused by the transportation of finished materials. The single most important factor in sustainable architecture is durability. Your building materials must be engineered to last a long time and resist damage caused by years of exposure to water, heat and UV radiation. Fiber cement stands up to these elements exceptionally well, and only James Hardie products are specifically engineered to optimize product performance in two separate climate zones.
