Tougher than the Elements: 

  •          Stands up to storms and harsh weather
  •          Water resistant to protect against swelling, warping and cracking
  •          Resists mold damage

  •          Fire resistant
  •          Reduces time and money spent on maintenance


Currently, there’s a trend towards traditional-style homes constructed of modern materials that offer a high-degree of sustainability. Accordingly, home styles are trending toward being more reflective of historic homes from the Key West-style coastal homes to Jacksonville’s rich past. The stucco look that has long dominated the residential market here is giving way to more versatile designs.

James Hardie® products help Dostie Homes answer the wants and needs of today’s homeowners by being a great quality product that captures all those styles. HardiePlank® lap siding, HardieShingle® siding and HardieTrim® boards really bring the classic Coastal look to life, but with the durability that today’s homeowner needs.
