With a range of textures and styles, you can opt for HardiePlank® lap siding in smooth texture to recreate the authentic look of a historic renovation, or go with a staggered edge HardieShingle® siding in cedar texture for a more relaxed Cape Cod style, or if you crave a modern-looking exterior, go with the HardiePanel® vertical siding. No matter your style, there’s a variety of trim options to polish off your preferred aesthetic.
Besides the striking appearance, there’s stronger protection, too. When it comes to wood and wood-based siding, such as LP® Smartside® siding, it performs like wood. Meaning, when exposed to cycles of precipitation and heat, it can have a tendency to expand, buckle and crack, along with attract pests (turns out, Midwest woodpeckers are a serious home-siding problem). For superior on-the-wall performance, the smarter choice is using stronger, more stable James Hardie fiber cement siding.
Take a peek at this before-and-after; wave goodbye to the underperforming wood siding and hello to high-performance James Hardie siding.
This suburban ranch home was clad in wood siding that eventually began to rot, swell and peel. After a re-side in HardiePlank lap siding in Evening Blue with HardieTrim® boards in crisp Arctic White, it still has the same quaint, homey feel but now flaunts high-performance siding and trim that’ll protect the exterior for years. The homeowners can feel secure knowing their new siding doesn’t attract pests and has a new clean, pristine appearance—all while staying true to the home’s original character.
