Fiber Cement Siding

Understanding the role of CertainTeed Fiber Cement Siding in meeting Green Building Standards


Green Facts:

  • WeatherBoards contains more than 30% post-industrial material, diverting millions of pound of materials from landfills annually and contributes to LEED and NAHB credits.  It also creates a greater inter-laminar bonding for better and longer performance.
  • Our manufacturing facilities recycle the water used in our plants, resulting in a savings of more than 2 billion gallons per year.
  • The majority of wood fiber pulp used in our fiber cement products is supplied from sustainably managed forests.
  • By using recycled content in our product, nearly 100,000 tons of this material are diverted from landfills each year. Recycling also lessens the demand for virgin materials that would require quarrying, and substitutes for materials that may be energy-intensive to create, such as Portland cement.
