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 does not rot, crack, or split. It is 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. 2X Smooth HardieTrim:
James HardiTrim 2X boards are decorative non-load bearing trim products with a foam backing.
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.
James Hardie Building Products, 1nc. HardieBacker 1/4 inch Cement Board, with EZ Grid Technology:
