    James Hardie siding is composed of natural and sustainable raw materials such as cement, sand, cellulose fiber and water. While green practices can sometimes limit design options, the company has a range of textures and colors that can satisfy several design variations.

    Looking over this year’s survey results, it’s clear that building professionals think that green products are better and more available than ever before. said Green Builder editor in chief Matt Power. About 75 percent of respondents indicated that they believe that green products are higher quality from brands that they know and trust.
