James Hardie®: Top Three Siding Profiles
James Hardie® offers a fabulous selection of fiber cement siding profiles that can suit any style of home. In this blog, Colonial Remodeling, LLC shares a look at the brand’s most popular siding profiles.
HardiePlank® Lap Siding
HardiePlank lap siding is the most popular James Hardie siding option. The traditional horizontal style is perfect for any home style that requires clapboard or Dutch lap siding. One of the greatest benefits of fiber cement siding is that it’s twice as thick as vinyl siding. In addition to its enhanced durability, fiber cement siding allows a deeper, natural-looking wood grain and shadow lines. HardiePlank lap siding is available in smooth, beaded cedarmill and beaded smooth textures.
Traditional cedar shingles are exceptionally beautiful, which is why many homeowners are willing to put up with all the maintenance they require. With James Hardie HardieShingle® siding, you can have the best of both worlds. You can choose between staggered edge panels for a hand-cut look or straight edge panels for a streamlined design. Both options will give your home the look and feel of real wood shingles, without the extensive maintenance requirements.
HardiePanel® Vertical Siding
Certain architectural styles look great with vertical siding. HardiePanel vertical siding can be combined with HardiePlank Lap Siding for contrast and variety and is available in three distinct textures: select cedarmill, smooth and stucco.
