TIPS FOR RE-SIDING A HOUSE

Now that you've decided to re-side, it's time to take action. As with most remodeling projects, there's a process involved. Don't rush in. Take your time, and you will be happy with the results.
Step 1

Get Inspired

Drive around your community and snap photos of home exteriors you like. Make a Pinterest board of your favorite home styles and colors. Browse real Hardie homes in our Photo Showcase and save images to My Idea Center.
 
Search James Hardie products and experiment with our Home Color Tool for more inspiration. Then use our guide for gathering information to determine what will make you happiest with your home.
Step 2

Create Your Budget

If Step 1 is about discovering what you dream of in a home, Step 2 is about budgeting to make it come true. A builder can help you plan for your project’s costs. Use our guide to find the right builder for your home.
Step 3

Make A Plan

Now that you have a budget, you can set the wheels in motion. Download our Inspiration Guide to discover which James Hardie siding is best for your new home. Make a list of what you need to achieve your vision for its exterior.
Step 4

Finalize Your Project's Scope

Once you have a game plan (for example, which shade of ColorPlus Technology siding is right for your home), list the exact materials and manpower required to complete your project within budget and on schedule. You are ready to choose your builder.
Step 5

Choose Your Builder

If the first round of contractor meetings leaves you unsatisfied, keep searching. This process could take a while. Take your time. Contractors are used to getting follow-up calls weeks or months after an initial meeting, and it’s worth the wait to find a contractor you trust.
Step 6

Establish Trust

Building a house is one of the biggest projects you will ever take on. That’s why you’ve hired a professional to help you through it. Establish ground rules for communication, so your concerns are heard and the builder can do their job.
Step 7

Enjoy Your New Siding

After all that work, your home is complete. It looks beautiful. You can relax, admire its exterior, and celebrate this new chapter for you and your family. Congratulations!
