Re-siding a home can spark an exterior transformation. You may not think so, but new siding can look so good it makes you second-guess whether you’re pulling into the right driveway. There’s just something about fresh James Hardie® siding and trim that turns a drab-colored, worn-out looking house into a clean, updated, bright home. It’s enough to cause a double take.
Why is James Hardie siding the perfect way to enhance your home’s exterior? Here are a few reasons:
Durability: Every James Hardie siding product is engineered to help withstand damage from pests, fire and Midwest weather (such as freezing temperatures, moisture, snowfall, ice, hail, wind and extreme temperature variations).
A warranty: James Hardie is so confident in its products that it offers a 30-year non-prorated limited warranty on its HardiePlank® lap siding and HardieShingle® siding and a 15-year non-prorated limited warranty on HardieTrim® boards.
Take a peek at these before-and-after images; they may just be enough to get you looking at siding swatches:
From Cream to Green
This Midwest suburban home went from light and traditional to bold and durable. The creamy siding was upgraded to HardiePlank lap siding and straight edge HardieShingle siding (in the gables) in Mountain Sage with HardieTrim boards in Arctic White. The bold, white trim choice accentuates the dark green and the natural wood garage door matches the front door for a robust and rustic look.
From Light and White to Lively Blue
Check out the after status of this Midwest two-flat—it pops. The home is clad in HardiePlank lap siding in Boothbay Blue with straight HardieShingle siding in Sail Cloth. The homeowners upgraded the front door and porch railing to create a pristine and protected stunner.
