Below, learn more about the main types of James Hardie siding so you can make an informed decision for your home.
HardiePanel Vertical Siding
Are you looking for a way to give your home’s exterior a unique look? Consider HardiePanel Vertical Siding, which is a stark contrast compared to most horizontal siding options. The unique vertical plank is a natural attention-grabber, drawing eyes to your home to give you a definite boost in curb appeal.
Vertical siding can also make your home appear taller, as it draws the eye up to your roof, enhancing the height of your home. HardiePanel Vertical Siding comes in a variety of finishes like Smooth and Stucco, helping you complete the unique look of your exterior.
HardiePlank Lap Siding
Recognized as James Hardie’s best-selling product, its HardiePlank Lap Siding gives your home a timeless and traditional look. You can choose the Smooth option or the Select Cedarmill, which is a textured grain that mimics the look of wood siding.
Both finishes are available in the following color groups:
- Blues and greens
- Classic light and darks
- Earth tones
- Greys and neutrals
Another option to consider if you like the look of wood siding is the HardieShingle siding line. Also known as shake siding, it can give your home a more rustic look. If you don’t want to commit to the look for your whole home, you can even use it as an accent siding for certain parts of your exterior.
HardieShingle siding comes in the following options:
- Staggered edge
- Straight edge
The straight edge is ideal for giving your home simple, straight lines. This is a popular option for Cape Cod-style homes or cottages. The staggered edge is a rustic option, giving your home a more textured look.
