At James Hardie, we create innovative products that increase the beauty, value, safety and durability of the buildings you design. Explore increased design options through our wide variety of product colors and textures, and enjoy superior performance that allows your designs to last a lifetime.

Siding Products
James Hardie Building Products, Inc. Artisan® Lap
Use architectural-grade Artisan® Lap and the difference is plain to see. Utilizing the thickest material on the market-Artisan Lap creates deeply defined shadow lines which are both aesthetically pleasing and structurally integrated. Our unique tongue-and-groove design means tighter tolerances for a precise fit and finish.

James Hardie Building Products, Inc. HardiePlank™ Lap Siding
HardiePlank™ lap siding offers the beauty and traditional look of wood lap siding while providing very non-wood-like benefits: low maintenance and an unmatched resistance to weather damage in wet and humid climates while retaining its natural beauty. Our proprietary ColorPlus® Technology combines a professionally developed 26-color paint palette optimally formulated for use with fiber cement. The multi-coat, baked-on factory application process delivers a strikingly beautiful and consistent finished product.

James Hardie Building Products, Inc. HardieShingle™ Siding
HardieShingle™ siding has the same warm, authentic look as cedar shingles, yet it doesn't rot, crack or split. It's beautiful as a primary siding or as a complement to other styles of James Hardie® siding. Our shingle siding panels come in a variety of decorative edges, and expedite installation in larger areas. Ideal for smaller coverage areas, HardieShingle individual shingles come in a variety of widths for an authentic handcrafted look.

James Hardie Building Products, Inc. HardiePanel™ Vertical Siding
HardiePanel™ siding products offer protection from fire, weather, and insects. Use our recommended metal edging to create sharp, expressed seams that result in a visually
stunning exterior surface that's as low-maintenance and low-cost as it is high-quality. Residential vertical siding is also available in wood grain and stucco patterns.

Trim
The perfect accent for James Hardie's architectural grade Artisan® Lap is architectural-grade Artisan™ Accent Trim. With an impressive thickness of 1.5", it casts the same dramatically deep and defined shadows as the Artisan Lap it accompanies. Of course, it also offers the same durability, low maintenance and ease of installation.

James Hardie Building Products, Inc. HardieTrim™ Boards
Our fiber cement trim and fascia add the finishing touch to a beautiful, lasting project. They provide unmatched durability in corners, columns, windows, rakes and friezes. HardieTrim™ boards are pre-primed with PrimePlus® sealer and primer. This proprietary process for fiber cement trim ensures uniform coverage of sealer and primer, providing an excellent surface for paints. HardieTrim boards come with a 10-year transferable limited warranty.

James Hardie Building Products, Inc. HardieSoffit™ Panels
James Hardie pre-cut soffit panels eliminate the need for separate box or strip vents and minimize the need for cutting. HardieSoffit™ panels are available vented or non-vented, in a range of pre-cut sizes. All styles are pre-primed with PrimePlus® sealer and primer. This proprietary process ensures uniform coverage of sealer and primer, providing an excellent surface for paints. Our soffit panels also resist fungus and mildew, even in damp climates.

James Hardie Building Products, Inc. HardieBacker™ 1/4 inch Cement Board, with EZ Grid® Technology
HardieBacker™ 1/4 inch Cement Board, with EZ Grid® Technology, for floors and countertops is America's best selling 1/4 inch board. It's the solution you can trust for your wet area floors, walls, ceilings, and countertops. This no-mesh board is the lightest cement board available and cuts easily, even in tight, awkward spaces.

James Hardie Building Products, Inc. HardieBacker™ 1/2 inch Cement Board
HardieBacker™ 1/2 inch Cement Board for walls and floors delivers superior protection against moisture damage and mold growth. Its smooth surface may be painted, textured, wallpapered, or tiled.
