James Hardie® ColorPlus® Technology: An Overview

One of the most common complaints about siding is the constant need to scrape and repaint it. While other types of siding are available in molded-in colors, the color selections are limited and can fade under the sun before long. James Hardie® fiber cement siding overcomes this problem with ColorPlus® Technology. DryTech Roofing gives you a closer look at how this can keep your exterior looking vibrant without all the effort.

What is ColorPlus Technology?

ColorPlus Technology is an exclusive James Hardie color application process. All James Hardie products, including the HardieTrim® boards and the best-selling HardiePlank® siding, feature this technology. The colors are factory-applied using a special process that allows 50% more coats of paint than other siding types, while still retaining the siding texture. The coats are then backed and cured. The resulting finish is exceptionally durable, and is protected from fading from extended exposure to sunlight.

Once you have James Hardie siding on your home’s exterior, you don’t have to worry about having to scrape and repaint your siding, ever. It doesn’t chip, crack or peel. The colors stay amazingly vibrant no matter how long it’s installed on your home. And thanks to the long service life of all James Hardie fiber cement siding, you’ll never need to have your siding replaced – unless you’ll want a complete overhaul of your home in the future.

Color Palettes

If you have very specific color requirements for your home, you’ll be happy to know that James Hardie siding is available in virtually any color that you can think of. James Hardie’s website lists several color palettes that showcases what you can do with ColorPlus Technology. These color palettes range from warm colors that evoke an autumnal feel, and works best with terracotta tile roofs. At the other end of the spectrum, cool colors recall color palettes found in coastal areas. Or perhaps you want something dark and edgy – usually not available from other siding manufacturers – which adds a sense of elegance, as well as a contemporary look. All of these color palettes are possible with James Hardie ColorPlus Technology.
