James Hardie Siding is one of the most popular sidings in America. Not only is it highly durable and non-combustible, but also beautiful. Here we look at the aesthetic appeal of Hardie Board siding and what makes James Hardie’s colors so great.

Unique Colors with Multiple Options

James Hardie has a wide spectrum of colors that are not your run-of-the-mill colors, despite being their basic palette choices. They also offer over 700 colors in their “Dream Collection” which is ordered and pre-finished in their factory for an additional charge. In most cases, you won’t have to consider this because their collection is deep, rich and stylish.

Purity of Color

James Hardie ColorPlus Technology is a state-of-the-art color system that provides high performance unlike any other siding finish. It not only offers stunning color for your house but also stands up against harsh weather and the hands of time. Although you can choose to go with Hardie siding primed and ready for field painting, ColorPlus Technology’s performance can’t be beat.

This is the best way to ensure you benefit from their proprietary finish as it is not only color-rich, but also baked-on in a controlled factory setting. As a result, you get years of color that maintains its richness and protective integrity. ColorPlus Technology is fade-resistant, maintaining the vibrancy of color longer. You can easily find a color choice that works for your needs as the selection has been carefully created by a team of color experts.

Consistency of Color

The basic colors offered by James Hardie siding are rich and pronounced offering a purity not seen in other siding options. Because the colors are available both in their boards and their trim and soffits you can have a consistent look across your home to create a unified look or use contrasting colors for more impact. You can choose the perfect colors for trim without defaulting to the basic white.

The Emergence of Arctic White

A testament to the color experts at James Hardie is Arctic White. You’ve probably noticed the trend for white siding with black trim in your neighborhood. Hardie siding’s Arctic White outsold all others across North America. Although it is very modern, it also has a classic, homestyle look which means it can be applied to any home. This new “modern farmhouse” look appeals to people of all ages and works well in any neighborhood. Although most people would regard this as an absence of color, there is no denying it is going to continue to spread creating lovely farmhouses in urban, suburban, and rural areas alike.
