Liven up your Exterior with these Siding Styles
Hearing the word siding may conjure up a specific image in your mind. For most, it’s the timeless look of
horizontal planking. But turns out, siding isn’t so one-sided. In fact, with James Hardie® siding and trim, you can opt for fiber cement shingles, vertical siding or HardieTrim® boards. Each offer high-performance durability and protection but with a variety of looks.
Whether your Maple Grove MN home is a Tudor, bungalow, Victorian or ranch, there are plenty of design options to choose from for your next exterior siding project. Here are a few options that may shift your siding perspective:
HardiePlank® lap siding: There’s a reason this siding style is the most popular James Hardie product—it’s design-savvy, timeless and strong. This horizontal siding exhibits the classic look most of us think of when envisioning a home’s exterior siding. If you choose to go this route, you can decide between the smooth, rustic, or beaded varieties. This simple rambler-style home is sided in HardiePlank lap siding in Timber Bark ColorPlus® Technology for a clean, well-protected and refreshed look.
HardiePanel® vertical siding: If you’re seeking a more contemporary look from your home, incorporating
some or all HardiePanel vertical siding is an option. These homeowners chose to outfit their modernized Victorian in Khaki Brown HardiePlank lap siding with smooth HardiePanel vertical siding to highlight the home’s gables. When selecting your vertical siding, you may decide to side the entire body of the home in a vertical option, or just a portion of the house. Depending on your taste, you can opt for smooth, rustic or stucco texture.
HardieShingle® siding: For instant character to any home, add shingles to your siding idea list. If your Cape Cod finds its home deep in the Midwest, shingles are an ideal way to add an authentic northeast look. You can use shingles sparingly to accentuate a section of the house, or on the entire home’s exterior. With shingles, you also have the choice to stagger them or keep them straight. This Midwest Cape Cod is decked out in straight HardieShingle siding in Light Mist.
This updated bungalow uses straight ColorPlus HardieShingle siding in Gray Slate around the bay window and HardiePlank lap siding in Monterey Taupe on the body of the house.
HardieTrim® boards: Trim is like the icing on the cake—the final touch that adds a finished look to your home’s exterior. It’s a seamless way to accentuate your home’s corners, columns, doors and windows. When selecting boards, you can go rustic for a raised texture that mimics wood grain, or smooth, for a more modern look. This Midwest Tudor has Timber Bark HardieTrim boards, which highlight its steeply pitched roof and intersecting gables.
No matter what Minnesota home style you possess, when you go with James Hardie products, you not only get built-to-last home siding, you get peace of mind, too. Here are a few standout, stress-saving advantages:
• James Hardie engineers have devised the HardieZone® System to provide you with siding best suited for the region where you live. The system takes into account climatic variables (think rainfall, snow, hail and humidity) that can affect the long-term performance of siding. This means you’ll benefit from siding that lasts longer with lower maintenance no matter where you live.
• While paint and other siding finishes can dull over time, James Hardie’s ColorPlus Technology is made to resist damaging UV rays, so your color will stay vibrant longer.
• Compared to its siding counterparts, James Hardie fiber cement products offer superior protection and durability with a 30-year non-prorated limited warranty and a 15-year non-prorated limited warranty for HardieTrim boards.
