How to choose a siding color (with so many options!)
With a vibrant robust color palette, you're sure to find the perfect color with James Hardie ColorPlus siding and trim!
With so many options I chose ... Arctic White. Meh - I like the classics. Something about stark white that boasts confidence and class.
The entire family of James Hardie siding products are available in a primed finish ready for you to hire a painter to paint or available in their proprietary ColorPlus technology finish. This is a big investment, no doubt, but when you invest in ColorPlus Technology, you won’t only get absolutely gorgeous color - you’ll get color that will last longer than a typical paint job. Especially here in Spokane and Coeur d'Alene.
Through an in-house manufacturing and painting facility, James Hardie’s ColorPlus siding goes through what they call an annealing process; the boards are heated up, and given multiple coats of paint (50% more than your average house painter uses) to the visible surface and each edge leaving no spot uncovered.
Then, between each coat, the finish is cured in a controlled environment for an even stronger bond that resists chipping, peeling and cracking.
With superior research and development, the scientists at James Hardie (they literally have people walking around in white lab coats) have developed a finish that stands up to our summer’s sun here in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene. Vinyl will fade over time as well as that thinned out field painted job that was applied in suboptimal conditions (right after the rain shower or when the temperature was too cold, or during the high wind event.) Did you know, according to the top paint manufacturers own literature we have about 25 days of 'optimal' painting conditions here in Spokane and Coeur d'Alene? However, painters are jamming paint jobs in all spring, summer, and way too late in fall in order to get their jobs completed. What does this mean to you? It means your home is getting painted in wind, in overly humid conditions, and not applied correctly which greatly reduces the performance and durability of your paint and pretty much kisses your warranty good-bye! I mean, why would you paint your car in the driveway, right? With James Hardie ColorPlus the board is painted inside in super optimum conditions to look flawless on the wall! Let's talk about it! Look at this home - see the variations in color on this panel? This was painted on a windy day - look how thin that paint is. It will need to be repainted in about, well, now, however, they'll be lucky to squeeze 3 years out of it.
