James Hardie Cement Siding
James Hardie is one of the top fiber cement siding brands on the market and is recognized as one of the best siding options in the country. Part of what sets it apart from other materials is its unique composition. James Hardie fiber cement siding is made from the following:
Portland cement, which includes limestone, iron, and clay and acts as a binder for all the other materials
Silica sand, which acts as a filler
Wood pulp, which makes the siding flexible and resilient
Water, which helps to activate and harden the Portland cement
The result is a durable material that looks great.
