James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding: Eco-Friendly From the Factory to Your MN Home

Replacing your siding is a necessary task, especially in environments with dramatic ranges in temperatures like Minnesota. Some materials can be wasteful, but one manufacturer, James Hardie producers of fiber cement siding, goes the extra mile to be as environmentally friendly as possible.

Fiber cement siding itself is extremely environmentally friendly. It’s composed of completely natural, sustainable raw materials which have very low toxicity levels. Those materials are cellulose fiber, cement, sand and water. They’re taken from regional, domestic and local sources as much as possible, but even when they need to be shipped in from elsewhere; they’re never taken from endangered environments.

The eco-friendly nature of this siding continues throughout the manufacturing process. James Hardie is constantly experimenting with new methods to increase the amount of waste materials they can recycle and minimize that which they can’t reuse. Currently, they’re working on a process to reuse all of the water they need for the manufacturing process. Because factories are spread throughout the country, they also use less fossil fuel in transportation.

Final Product
Once the siding is completed and installed, it continues the trend of good stewardship. Because it’s so durable, it lasts longer than competing cladding options, which means there’s less need for new manufacturing. In addition to protecting your home, it allows great air circulation without impeding water drainage. This lowers the chance of mold growth or water damage to underlying structures, which means there’s less need for materials to go towards expensive repairs. In addition, James Hardie has come up with a system to design products tailor made to the different needs of the various climates across the country.

When the time comes to update your cladding, fiber cement siding by James Hardie is kind to the environment and one of the strongest options out there.

After a hailstorm, we needed to repair our siding, fix our roof and replace some storm windows. We were fortunate to find Quarve as we couldn’t find another contractor who was willing to take on the entire job. The best part about with working with Pat Quarve was the attention to design detail. Quarve was also able to work with the insurance company to help negotiate a fair settlement.
Linda and Jim, Anoka

From the beginning, we had a very positive experience with Pat Quarve. It was less about the sale and more about how well Quarve was going to put the finishing touch on our project. We were also impressed at how well the crew worked together, as a team, efficiently doing the job right the first time! Should any prospective clients wish to see Quarve perfection, we invite them to come past our home and see for themselves.

Denise and I want to let you know how pleased we are with our new roof. Even more important was the whole experience with your company. The crew was terrific as were the people in the office in helping us manage all of the communication and paperwork with the insurance company, mortgage company and the city. We would definitely work with you again and recommend you to others.
Steve, Eden Prairie

Thank you and your staff for partnering with us on our green project. You went above and beyond to educate us, provide options, guide us from start to finish and help us make decisions that worked for us as well as the environment. We felt that Pat was genuinely concerned about meeting our needs and providing products that are environmentally friendly. We will enjoy the improvements for years to come.
Chuck & Kathy, Roseville

We want to thank you for the recent work Quarve Contracting completed on our home. The roof, gutters and shutters looks great! Pat suggested a new roof color and shutters that have really updated the look of our home. Many friends have commented on the new look and we couldn’t be happier! We will call Quarve Contracting again if another construction project is needed at our house.
Tammi and Randy, Blaine

We would like to thank you for a great job on our house. We chose Quarve because they displayed professionalism from the start and we knew they were very quality driven. Anybody can up siding, roofing and gutters but is it going to last and meet state codes? This is important to protect our investment. Quarve exceeded all of our expectations. Thank you to Quarve for a great job!!
Bob and Rachelle, Cambridge

We want to let you know how very impressed we are with how you handled replacing our roof after hail damage. It seems to be a rare occasion that you can hire a contractor who is not only professional and innovative in business practices but also used top quality products and actually does what they say they will do! You helped us see there really is a difference in who you hire as a contractor – you take the cake! To us, Quarve Contracting stands for integrity, quality and professionalism.
Leo and Lisa, Lino Lakes

The quality of Quarve Contracting’s work and the professionalism of the crew was outstanding! We’ve recommended Quarve to three friends, all of whom selected Quarve to do their siding. Each homeowner was impressed with the completed work. We continue to recommend Quarve for their unwavering commitment to customer service and quality workmanship at a fair price.
Jim and Jill, Shoreview

Our house looks great and the whole experience was pleasant and hassle-free. We loved the work they did so well that we hired them on another project and recommended them to friends and family. Quarve Contracting is not only a step above the rest in the construction field, they are leaps and bounds above the rest.
