Posted by at 9:00 AM

Have you checked your home's siding recently? The siding on your home is important. It is important since it protects you and your family, not just your home. If you have upgraded your siding recently, you’re more able to protect your family from the outside elements while also cutting down on the amount that you spend on the energy bills.  But if you haven't and you're a homeowner that is thinking about going green, consider James Hardie fiber cement siding for your home. 09sep25g8a14This type of siding is made from wood, sand, cement, and water. This creates a structurally sound, beautiful and strong covering for the outside of your home. It is fire resistant and durable, standing up well against many different storms that might blow through the Minneapolis and St. Paul area. And with James Hardie siding you can choose from a wide range of styles and colors to match the look you are after. Your design options are flexible and versatile, so you’re able to make the most out of it when you choose to put it on your home. The Benefits of Choosing Fiber Cement Siding for Your Home One of the biggest factors to consider about fiber cement siding is that it is more durable than vinyl siding and requires less upkeep and care than wood. You will not have to maintain it like wood siding; just spray it with a hose as needed throughout the year to keep it clean and looking nice. It is able to withstand extremely cold temperatures, as well as winds that gust up to 130 mph or more. Even when the temperatures fluctuate, the siding stands up to the challenge. It will not melt in the heat, or let the heat in through the walls. Fiber cement siding is recyclable, which makes it a top pick for those that are going green. It is made from organic building materials that are able to reduce the waste that is found in land fills. The materials that fiber cement siding is made from will also not leak chemicals into the ozone when heated. Fiber cement siding is also much more sustainable compared to vinyl siding. The siding is made with far less energy than the other leading siding choices. You can improve your energy efficiency within the home, as well.
