Live Colorfully

Choosing colors is both the most exciting and most daunting part of updating your home’s exterior. That’s why we’ve narrowed the vast spectrum for you, creating a palette of sure bets. The basic categories below will help you understand colors’ emotional and aesthetic effects, which will in turn help you decide which hues are right for your house.
General guidelines can’t possibly answer every homeowner’s needs. But here are two universal rules of thumb: First, respect your home’s architecture (don’t paint a Tudor yellow). Second, look at your neighbors’ houses—don’t choose a color that fights the block.
An inviting siding color can turn a so-so house into a head-turner.
James Hardie’s ColorPlus® Technology comes in an array of carefully curated, fade-resistant colors. Opt for stylish and easy.

Warm

Reds, deep oranges, and golden yellows bring to mind autumn leaves in the North. More muted tones recall the terra-cotta roofs and desert sands of the Southwest.
DESIGN ADVICE: Gray-toned reds are best suited for traditional houses in rural towns and older cities in the Midwest and Northeast. Browns, warm reds and yellows in subtle tones are great for trims on a Craftsman, adobe, or rustic ranch—in any setting.

Fresh

Yellows and greens evoke freshness. Yellow is sunshine, and will make a house look happy. Yellow-based greens are linked with new growth, while deeper greens evoke maturity.
DESIGN ADVICE: Choose greens for regions that have lots of old, leafy trees (not the Southwest, that is). Yellows are best for more casual houses, such as bungalows and cottages (and the occasional Colonial with green shutters).

Cool

The colors of the sky and water are always calming. Navy feels classy. Robin’s egg feels breezy (why else are porch ceilings throughout the South painted light blue?).
DESIGN ADVICE: Gray-blue shades on shingled Cape Cods are classic. But the truth is, gray-blue rarely looks out of place, whether acting as an accent or main color.

Dark

Dark grays, blues and greens can feel both intellectual and modern. When used with white trim, they create drama.
DESIGN ADVICE: Works well in old neighborhoods, where a dark house won’t stick out like a sore thumb, or urban environments, where there is a mix of old and new.

Light

Whites and soft pastels are pure, clean, new and bright. But all light and no dark can be boring. Add other hues to add interest, personality and drama.
DESIGN ADVICE: Great on houses with a Colonial inspiration. A white house can look beautiful on a large green lawn. A pastel A-frame cottage can looks sweet and charming. White is always lovely for trim.

Neutral

Neutral rules the suburbs. These shades are safe, but also sophisticated. When accessorized with black or a darker color, a neutral can look downright chic.
DESIGN ADVICE: Great for contemporary construction. Play with textures and use different tones for trim or in horizontal bands to add interest.

Count on ColorPlus® Technology

James Hardie ColorPlus® Technology combines distinct beauty and high performance in a way that no other finish does. It’s the easiest way to choose a gorgeous color for your house, and feel confident in its staying power.
While all James Hardie® siding and trim products are available primed and ready for field painting, when you invest in ColorPlus® Technology, you're getting a consistent coat of proprietary finish that was baked-on in a closely controlled factory environment. That means even coverage and color that will last for years and years.
 
Another benefit of ColorPlus Technology? It helps resist fading from UV rays, so your color will stay vibrant for longer than regular paint.
 
Last but not least, the ColorPlus Technology palette contains a variety of gorgeous, well-edited colors curated by our color experts. Instead of feeling overwhelmed by choices, you’ll feel empowered by our tried-and-true options.
