Several years back they created a division, Pro Exterior, that specialized exclusively in James Hardie Siding and Marvin Wood and Fiber Glass Windows. Chris has been in the home improvement industry for over 10 years. Siding has been his favorite product to work with and sell to homeowners in the Columbus build and remodeling market.

James Hardi was from Australia and founded the namesake company in the 1800s.  After the company was sold multiple times, the name continued and eventually create the first-ever fiberglass siding product in the 1980s.  The siding does not have many of the problems that other sidings can develop such as warping or deteriorating.  It is available in primed or pre-painted products. Pro-Exterior by APCO specializes specifically in the pre-painted products due to the quality of the finish.

James Hardi siding offers ample amounts of designs to allow clients to make their home custom to their taste when building or remodeling in Columbus.  Pro-Exterior by APCO has the technology to take photos of the client’s home and provided renderings of the James Hardi product already installed before even lifting a hammer to the home itself.  Textures, style, and colors can all be adjusted to visualize their home with James Hardi.
