Mix and Match with James Hardie® Siding Styles and ColorPlus® Colors

There’s a lot to love about James Hardie’s ColorPlus® Technology. Besides the fact that it’s specifically engineered to help resist damaging UV rays, there’s also a stunning selection of colors crafted by James Hardie color experts.

The curated colors look great on any exterior, and they are crafted to complement one another. With James Hardie® siding and trim, enhanced with ColorPlus Technology and installed by experienced siding contractor like Schmidt Exteriors, there’s no need to second guess your design. You can’t go wrong.

Whether it’s a bold blue (such as Deep Ocean) a rich red (such as Countrylane Red) or a creamy neutral (such as Sail Cloth), each color is made to pair well with one another.

With the ColorPlus palette, the complementing and sophisticated tones of your home siding and trim are narrowed down for you.

To highlight this, we’ve found a home that uses three different siding colors and three different siding styles for an end product that’s interesting, not overwhelming. When it comes to James Hardie home siding and trim, the more the merrier.


This suburban home is clad in straight edge HardieShingle® siding, HardiePlank® lap siding and HardiePanel® vertical siding. The variation of the shingles and panels in the gables adds an interesting layer to the home’s exterior look.

When it comes to the palette, the shingles stand out in Countrylane Red, the HardiePlank lap siding feels classic in Autumn Tan, and the vertical panels in creamy Sail Cloth tie the look together, and match the home’s stonework. We also like that the Sail Cloth vertical panels is the same color as the HardieTrim® boards, and that the brown shutters match the roof and awnings of the home. For all the colors and siding styles present in their exterior, this home feels unified and unique.

If you seek the look of wood with the uniform bold and long-lasting color, you’ve met your match—James Hardie siding and trim with ColorPlus Technology. Whatever combination of colors and styles you design, it will remain protected for years. ColorPlus Technology finish comes with a 15-year limited warranty that covers paint and labor, protecting against peeling, cracking, and chipping.
