The Process

James Hardie® siding products with ColorPlus® technology – a unified composition of advanced fiber-cement and baked-on pigment – combine the highest quality raw materials, proprietary manufacturing process and equipment, revolutionary paint technology and innovative color process that gives homeowners a superior siding solution for their homes.
James Hardie®, the largest producer of fiber-cement siding in North America® is the only siding manufacturer that controls its product from the initial mixing of the cement to final painting in one facility. To ensure that every board meets James Hardie’s high standards, over 41 quality assurance checks are made throughout the manufacturing process and each batch of siding is also checked at three outside testing facilities to monitor long-term durability.

Color Accuracy

Have you ever taken a gallon of paint back to the store because it didn’t match the rest of your project? How would you feel if one side of your house was a shade darker than the rest? James Hardie® color variance accuracy standards for our ColorPlus® technology finish are three times stricter than what’s acceptable for most “store-bought” paints and more tightly controlled than the automotive industry.

Application Consistency

Then, the paint is baked-on in a closely controlled factory environment. Our automated manufacturing process, constant quality monitoring and application of up to 50% more paint – compared to field-applied paint – provides the most consistent paint application at the optimal thickness.
