When it comes to siding in Colorado and across the country, the James Hardie name is becoming more and more popular. Their fiber cement siding product is one of the most popular on the market today, used and enthused over by architects, builders, home improvement contractors and siding companies such as Colorado Siding.
Did you know that James Hardie also has a trim line as well, to complement their various lines of “green,” cutting edge, industry approved fiber cement siding? James Hardie trim is the perfect fit for anyone who is considering new trim, or wants to upgrade their existing trim.
We believe the choice of trim makes a huge difference to the overall look of the house. It can really show off the lines and architecture of the home, making certain features stand out. It can blend in and let other features stand out. It is a finishing touch that must be considered when choosing new siding.
James Hardie has several different lines of siding, from the traditional horizontal kind to HardieShingle, which looks just like – you guessed it – traditional wood shingles. (Only as opposed to wood, this product will not crack, dry out, warp, peel, rot, or add fuel to a fire.) Of course, their color spectrum runs from the deep, rich and luscious to the white, bright and crisp.
And of course, James Hardie trim is made to match, contrast, and complement each one of these siding products. They even suggest a trim to go with each of their “color palettes” but of course, you could choose something completely different if you so desire.
See some of the James Hardie fiber cement siding color choices here. Notice, the third color in each grouping is the trim color they recommend. We just did a home in their Countrylane Red, but instead of using the suggested Cobblestone color for the trim, we used Arctic White. The effect was truly striking. Country barn meets modern suburban mansion!
