Long-lasting, low-maintenance exterior finish products reduce replacement frequency, which means cost savings, reduced landfill impact, and fewer resources and time devoted to maintenance and replacement. Fiber-cement siding is highly durable; it doesn’t split, holds paint longer, and is more moisture-resistant than typical hardwood siding. Other green building siding options include recycled-content hard-board, natural or synthetic stucco, locally produced brick, and natural or faux stone.
