Combining eye-catching curb appeal and superior durability, James Hardie siding is an easy choice for your next job. The fiber cement used to make it is stronger and more flame-resistant than vinyl siding—and looks more natural. Recently, James Hardie, from Boise Cascade, introduced a new line of nature-inspired siding with reality TV home makeover stars Chip and Joanna Gaines.
Before your next siding job, check out these four reasons to choose James Hardie siding:
The elegant new Magnolia Home product line. Created with James Hardie by Chip and Joanna Gaines from HGTV/Magnolia Network’s popular show Fixer Upper, this new line of siding features a variety of nature-inspired colors. Available in three styles—plank, shingle and board-and-batten—as well as with trim and soffit products to help complete the exterior, Magnolia Home siding comes in 16 colors, including Wandering Green, Peppery Ash and It’s About Thyme. James Hardie fiber cement siding is noncombustible and provides protection against severe weather. The Magnolia coating is engineered to resist fading or discoloration from UV rays and includes a 15-year limited finish warranty.
Pre-finished siding looks good longer and is low-maintenance. James Hardie siding is created with ColorPlus Technology finishes, which helps keep it looking beautiful longer. With baked-on color that arrives ready for installation, Hardie siding and trim with ColorPlus Technology finishes offer exterior solutions with consistent color that resists fading, chipping and cracking. In addition to great looks, homeowners will enjoy Hardie’s low maintenance. Perhaps the most important aspect of Hardie pre-finished siding is how much time it saves: There’s no need to paint.

Siding designed for specific climates. Through its research-and-development programs, James Hardie created two types of siding specifically for different climate zones. HZ5 products are engineered to perform in climates—such as those found in the Northeast and Midwest—with wide seasonal temperature variations, from broiling heat to below freezing. HZ10 products are for climates with high humidity and more rain, such as the southern and western regions of the United States.
