If you’re getting new siding for your home this season, it pays to choose an exterior material that’s not only lovely and durable but eco-friendly as well. Our James Hardie® siding and trim are a prime example of this. They can keep your home sturdy and beautiful, all while helping you live a greener lifestyle. Polar Bear Exterior Solutions, a trusted siding contractor in the area, explains what makes our James Hardie siding and trim an eco-friendly choice. 

James Hardie® Trim and Siding: How Eco-Friendly Are They?
  • They’re made of sustainable materials.

Our James Hardie siding and trim are made of fiber cement. The material is an excellent blend of Portland cement, sand, water and cellulose fibers – all of which are sustainable raw materials. James Hardie fiber cement siding and trim are manufactured using an environmentally responsible process. In fact, the exterior material is so sustainable it was named the “Greenest Siding Brand” in the Green Builder® Media annual Readers’ Choice survey for 2020.

  • They have a longer service life.

Just like our Polar Bear windows, our fiber cement siding and trim from James Hardie are built to last. It will take decades before you need to have them replaced again, which means they contribute significantly in reducing landfill waste. Their longer life cycle also means you can save money on future home upgrades. Not only that, if you work with Polar Bear Exterior Solutions, you can save even more thanks to our Zero Zero Zero promotion, which allows for zero down payment, zero interest and zero payments for 12 months OAC on select projects.

  • They reduce volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions.

The fact is that other siding materials have to be painted after they’re installed on your home. Paint contains high levels of VOCs, which are chemicals that vaporize at room temperature and enter the atmosphere, contributing to air pollution. This is not an issue with the James Hardie siding and trim we offer. Thanks to ColorPlus® Technology, their vivid colors are baked into the siding and trim in a controlled environment, meaning there’s no need to paint them for years after they’re installed in your home.
