Then there are those who seek an exterior that’s new, durable and protects from the elements. Thankfully, both preferences don’t have to be mutually exclusive. With James Hardie® siding and trim, you can have both. Honor the classic look of your older home’s exterior, while adding performance and durability.
Homes with history boast old character in their porch details, windows and architectural elements. Now they can also be protected against the Midwest’s harsh weather with James Hardie products that are Engineered for Climate®. Be it snow, wind, rain or heat, your siding and trim can stand the test of time.
When it comes to vintage style, the right color can complete the design you desire. Whether you stick with a historically accurate hue or one that pops for some cheerful vintage charm, James Hardie’s ColorPlus® Technology palette has a range of colors for you to create your ideal vintage-style exterior. Unlike the original façade, these colors are baked-on, which helps resist fading, chipping and cracking.
Here are a few vintage-style homes clad in James Hardie siding and trim—now old character can be protected with new siding and trim.
This 1920’s cottage was re-sided in HardiePlank® lap siding in Monterey Taupe, straight edge HardieShingle® siding in Cobble Stone, with HardieTrim® boards in Arctic White. With the vintage-inspired color palette and style choices, this craftsman-style bungalow looks authentic to the time period and bellows charm.
This old, country farmhouse was re-clad in HardiePlank lap siding with cream-colored shutters and gingerbread trim. We love the gingerbread details, original window styles and antique screen door. It looks as flawless as the day it was built, and now boasts much more protection.
This shake-sided home was re-sided in HardiePlank lap siding in Mountain Sage with HardieTrim boards in Arctic White. Now the home is better protected from the region’s weather and looks fresh, all while maintaining its vintage style. We love the original red brick details in the chimney, walkway and mailbox.
This Craftsman home is clad in HardiePlank lap siding in Iron Gray. The fresh, modern gray hue suits this vintage-style home. When paired with the creamy white trim, Chicago brick walkway, original fence and quaint landscape, there’s a boost in the old-fashioned look.
