Red Brick Meets James Hardie® Siding

Red Brick Meets James Hardie® Siding

When it comes to bricks, red brick is the most common variety in the Midwest. According to market research, about 57 percent of Midwest homeowners have red brick details on their homes.

 

With the scientific advances in the building products industry over the past hundred years, James Hardie Building Products has engineered a fiber cement siding that combines beautiful design with high performance.  James Hardie® siding and trim help withstand damage from moisture and rot, resist damage from termites, and generally require less upkeep than wood siding.

 

This siding performs under extreme hot or cold conditions— it is noncombustible and can slow down the progress of flames, as well as help withstand a Midwest blizzard. And it looks great, too, especially when paired with red brick details.

 

Here are some home examples featuring James Hardie’s ColorPlus® Technology colors that complement red brick:
