James Hardie Chicago Siding has quite a collection of siding hues in the gray family. One of these standout colors is James Hardie’s Pearl Gray. It’s the most popular siding color in the Midwest and with good reason—it adds a hint of modernity to any style home.
James Hardie’s gray family includes darker options, such as Iron Gray or Night Gray, lighter shades, such as Pearl Gray, and medium-toned grays, such as Aged Pewter.
The lighter Pearl Gray feels cooler than the other grays in the James Hardie collection, and seems to come to life when paired with a darker gray, or a crisp, clean white. Any gray from the ColorPlus® palette that you choose will stay vibrant longer with less maintenance than field applied paint. James Hardie’s ColorPlus Technology is specifically engineered to help resist damaging UV rays.
For a refreshed look consider the most popular new neutral, Pearl Gray. Here’s a closer look at various homes clad in lap siding, shingles and panels, all in Pearl Gray:
