Eco-Friendly James Hardie Siding

JAMES HARDIE® SIDING NAMED GREENEST SIDING BRAND BY INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS

James Hardie, the leader in fiber cement siding, has once again been recognized by Green Builder® for having the most sustainable siding products. Green Builder® Media conducted its annual 2017 Readers’ Choice survey, which highlights leading green brands that have garnered the loyalty of building professionals.

The survey polls readers in the residential construction market to get insights into their sustainable product preferences and brand perceptions. Which green products are most familiar? Which brands do they trust and specify most often?

James Hardie was selected as offering the greenest products in the siding category, with the most respondents recommending the company’s sustainable exterior options over other siding manufacturers.

 

“A primary factor to James Hardie’s sustainability is its durability,” said John Dybsky, senior marketing manager at James Hardie. “Our products handle high heat, UV radiation and moisture exceptionally well, which significantly reduces the need for replacement over time.”

Keeping cool with Energy Efficient Windows

Windows are more than Just an Inclusion to Your Home’s Architectural Design

Source: www.windowsforyourhome.com

Tired of the heat already?  Your window plays a huge role in the volume of heat that gains entry into your home, or that is lost, at any point in time. This is why it is important that you are aware of the enormous consequences of having poor quality windows installed in your home. Not only do they serve as a major source of unwanted heat gain (in the summer months) or heat loss (in the winter months), they also require you to spend extra (unbudgeted money, sometimes) to have the Air Conditioning system running overtime, to keep your home temperature cool.

As a matter of fact, with our Infinity from Marvin Replacement window, there is technology that makes it possible for you to have super energy-efficient windows with low-E coatings, thus helping to reduce the typical solar heat gain, without compromising the design, view or the amount of daylight that comes in.

Who is the best window manufacturer?

 

What is the best window manufactured?

For this article, we are referring to the replacement window market primarily.  When discussing America’s window manufacturers,  you always hear of the “Big Three” – Andersen, Marvin, and Pella.  All three are exceptional window manufacturers.  They all started as wood window companies and have evolved over the years.  As they have evolved so, have other window companies.  The window market grew, and now there are dozens of window manufacturers in the U.S.  What makes the “Big Three” so special now?  As far as we are concerned, there is only one window manufacturer you need to think of – Marvin Windows and Doors.  Andersen Windows still makes excellent products and has diversified quite a bit over the hundred years or so that they have been around.  Pella makes suitable products although some in the industry feel their quality has declined some.  For quality and excellence, remodelers know that Marvin is the gold standard now.
