Low-E, or low-emissivity, glass is an excellent way to increase your
home's comfort and energy savings year-round.
For siding we selected Nichiha a fiber cement siding product. Nichiha has always had deep concern for the environment and the people
who install our products on a daily basis. It motivated them to formulate a fiber cement products a little differently by reducing the amount of
silica and increasing the amount fly ash in their formula. Silica is
essentially just a technical term for sand. It’s everywhere. It only
becomes a problem when it becomes airborne. Although it’s nearly
impossible to eliminate, their products contain the lowest levels of
silica in the industry. Fly ash is a natural byproduct of coal-burning
power plants. It is abundant and basically inert. By using fly ash
Nichiha improves the performance of their products and prevents a
substantial amount of post-industrial waste from sitting in a landfill.
Nichiha uses a proprietary stamping procedure to create the vast array
of textures. It enables them to create more pressure and have
more control than the commonly used rollers used by other manufactures.
More pressure means deeper grooves, more shadows and the more visual
drama. Nobody gives you more stunning and varied looks than Nichiha. In
fact, nobody else even comes close. Every product they offer comes off the line with three protective coatings;
2 coats of primer and an anti-efflorescence coating that prevents
chalky residue from appearing. The result is a product that holds paint
better and looks better longer. They are confident enough to back that up
with the strongest warranty in the business.
