James Hardie Color & Design

Reds, deep oranges, and golden yellows bring to mind autumn leaves in the North. More muted tones recall the terra-cotta roofs and sultry heat of the Southwest.

DESIGN ADVICE: Gray-toned reds are best suited for traditional houses in rural towns and older cities. Browns, warm reds and yellows in subtle tones are great for trims on a Craftsman, adobe, or rustic ranch.

The colors of the sky and water are always calming. Navy feels classy. Robin’s egg feels breezy (why else are porch ceilings throughout the South painted light blue?).

DESIGN ADVICE: Gray-blue shades on shingled Cape Cods are classic. But the truth is, gray-blue rarely looks out of place, whether acting as an accent or main color.

Yellows and greens evoke happiness and freshness. Yellow-based greens are linked with new growth, while deeper greens evoke maturity.

DESIGN ADVICE: Choose greens for regions that have lots of old, leafy trees. Yellows are best for more casual houses, such as bungalows and cottages (and the occasional Colonial with green shutters).

Whites and soft pastels are pure, clean, new and bright. But all light and no dark can be boring. Add other hues to add interest, personality and drama.

DESIGN ADVICE: Light colors work great on houses with a Colonial inspiration. White houses look beautiful on a large green lawn. A pastel A-frame cottage can look sweet and charming. White is always lovely for trim.

Dark grays, blues and greens can feel both intellectual and modern. When used with white trim, they create drama.

DESIGN ADVICE: Works well in old neighborhoods, where a dark house won’t stick out like a sore thumb, or urban environments, where there is a mix of old and new.

Neutral rules the suburbs. These shades are safe, but also sophisticated. When accessorized with black or a darker color, a neutral can look downright chic.

DESIGN ADVICE: Great for contemporary construction. Play with textures and use different tones for trim or in horizontal bands to add interest.

Your Investment

Re-siding with fiber cement is the smartest investment you can make in your house. Even smarter: Choosing fiber cement from the industry leader. That’s why those in the know choose James Hardie® siding and trim.

Siding and trim are exposed to Mother Nature all day, every day, for years. Weather, water, time, fire and pests—all can lead to trouble. That’s why James Hardie’s hardworking products are engineered to stand up beautifully, whatever the elements.

Lower Insurance

Since fiber cement siding (unlike vinyl) is non-combustible and hail-damage resistant, it can sometimes help reduce home insurance premiums. Talk to your agent for more information.
