Siding With Color Plus Technology Lets Painting Your Home Become a Distant Memory

Remember, back in the day, when you used to have to paint the exterior of your house? We do! Tall ladders leaning against the house, balancing heavy gallons of paint on their trays. Brushes, rollers and mixing sticks. Remember what a pain it was? Remember how quickly your home would start looking bad if you didn’t do it, your previous paint job fading, cracking, peeling off and crumbling from exposure to the elements?

And remember how much you hated it? If you could afford it, you passed the job off to a house painting company, and even then it was still a pain. Those days are largely gone. By installing siding with Color Plus Technology, you can avoid having to paint again for up to 15 years. Do we hear you heaving a sigh of relief?

Imagine your home’s exterior looking new for that long! James Hardie siding uses this phenomenal Color Plus technology, a process in which the color is not just laid on top of the siding (like when you used to paint your home). It’s not painted on so that any determined woodpecker or tree branch in a high wind can scrape it loose—but rather baked right into the fiber of the siding. As a result, your beautiful color will look new and beautiful and last for twice as long as it will in other siding options.

James Hardie even goes so far as to back this colorful claim with a 15-year limited finish warranty that covers both paint and labor.


Take a look at these beautiful James Hardie siding color options and styles that are currently available. Of course, your home can be sided with one color and your trim another, either matching or contrasting. And they will both remain looking equally good for equally long.

Is this the year you’re planning to add new siding to your home? James Hardie is considered a fantastic investment, adding more value to a home than even the addition of a new bathroom! (Although it might never be as popular with the teens!) Surprised?

If you are environmentally conscious and concerned, James Hardie fiber cement siding with Color Plus technology is also an outstanding choice. It’s made of sustainable, low toxicity ingredients, and of course, the fact that it doesn’t have to be repainted for many years also adds to its “green” appeal.

Here’s some information from the James Hardie website about their patented Color Plus Technology. You’ll find documentation for all their claims on their website as well, if you are interested.

Specially formulated paint stands up to UV levels in a way few field-applied paints can, offering up to 30% more fade resistance.

Over 41 quality checks are made throughout our proprietary manufacturing process to ensure the quality of the substrate, the texture and the finish. No other manufacturer can match our demanding quality standards.

As far as our clients go, we’ve received nothing but raves about this product. Too bad it’s unlikely that we will see any repeat siding business from these clients, for many years to come. Too bad for us, but fantastic for you.
