Fiber Cement Siding

If your project requires siding with the same warm, authentic look as cedar shingles, HardieShingle® siding provides just that—yet it resists rotting, cracking or splitting. It’s beautiful as a primary siding or as a complement to other styles of James Hardie® siding. Our shingle siding panels come in a variety of decorative edges, and expedite installation in larger areas. Ideal for smaller coverage areas, HardieShingle individual shingles come in a variety of widths for an authentic handcrafted look.

In the development of its products, and in its support of improved housing and community design, James Hardie actively contributes to the building industry’s efforts to create more sustainable materials, and better built homes and neighbourhoods.


Raw materials
The primary raw materials used in the manufacture of James Hardie’s products are readily available: cellulose fibre sourced from plantation grown timber wherever possible, sand from various sources, cement from a worldwide market, and water.

Cement continues to be the biggest contributor to the impact of James Hardie products on the environment, but its effect is being reduced. As the cement industry adopts cleaner and more efficient technologies, James Hardie adapts its processes and formulas to maximise the benefits to the environment.

Manufacturing processes
We devote considerable time, effort and capital to advancing fibre cement technology to ensure we:

  • Minimise the environmental impacts from our operations
  • Use water and energy more efficiently
  • Make use of recycled or by-product materials while delivering high performance, sustainable products
