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.
