Get the Right Colors With James Hardie ColorPlus® Technology

One of the best things about siding replacement is that, with a single project, you can completely transform your home’s exterior and significantly boost its curb appeal. Having pioneered fiber cement siding, James Hardie siding products have always been at the forefront of siding innovations, including ColorPlus® Technology. 

What is ColorPlus Technology?

Fiber cement siding is exceptionally durable compared to other siding materials, and not just structurally. James Hardie fiber cement siding features a durable finish with factory-applied colors, with up to 50% more coats of paint than what average house painters would apply on traditional siding. The finishes are baked-on and factory-cured, which makes them resistant to peeling, chipping and cracking. James Hardie ColorPlus Technology also has protection against UV rays, resulting in vibrant colors that stay that way for a long time.

Color Options

James Hardie offers a wide selection of individual colors that will fit any color combination that you choose. These colors are available in all James Hardie fiber cement siding products, including James Hardie plank siding. Additionally, James Hardie also has a curated selection of colors that look great together. Here are some examples:

  • Warm colors – If you’re after an autumnal color palette that includes reds, oranges and yellows reminiscent of red tile roofs and stucco walls, then you should give this color palette a look.

  • Cool colors – This calm and serene palette is reminiscent of homes located in coastal areas. Its cool shades of blue look great with a dark roof.

  • Fresh colors – Homeowners who are into vibrant spring-inspired colors will love this palette, which includes bright yellows and greens. This palette is especially effective in homes surrounded by trees and lush foliage, which makes it pop in the fall, as the leaves start to turn red.

  • Light colors – Classic white, along with soft pastels, creates a clean and elegant look, without looking anemic. Additionally, light colors reflect the sun’s rays, reducing the heat absorbed by your home, which helps reduce your energy bills.

  • Dark colors – You can also choose to go the other way and opt for dark colors, for a mysterious yet modern look typically seen in urban neighborhoods.

  • Neutral colors – Neutrals such as browns and grays are a staple of modern architecture, curated in James Hardie’s neutral color palettes. When used in other architectural styles, it exudes sophistication and agelessness.

Whatever color palette you choose, you can expect James Hardie to have it.
