Hardie Plank

Vinyl siding fades over time, aluminum siding is easily dinged or dented, and some older homes that have asbestos tiles for siding can be a health hazard! Why not consider Hardie Plank Lap Siding and leave many of those repairs and maintenance issues in the rear-view window?

Hardie Shingle

Unlike natural cedar shingle siding, Hardie Shingle siding needs very little attention for it to retain its great appearance. While cedar is naturally resistant to the elements, it will weather over time and needs plenty of attention to prevent damage from pests.

Hardie Trim

While Hardie lap, vertical, or shingle fiber cement siding makes up the bulk of your home’s exterior, trim pieces are needed to complete the overall finished look of your home. Used to make the exterior of your house stand out even more, Hardie Trim, soffit panels, and fascia boards provide the contrast to the primary color of your home.

Hardie Architectural

While lap siding is the most popular product James Hardie offers, for those looking for a different look or dimension, Hardie Architectural Collection siding fits the bill perfectly. Possessing all of the same low-maintenance durability and long-lasting good looks, the siding will give your home a unique look that’s sure to stand out.

Hardie Mixed Material

Your home’s outer appearance provides a chance to showcase your personality and style. To achieve a dynamic look that reflects your uniqueness, contemplate incorporating multiple materials for the exterior James Hardie siding in your design.

Hardie ColorPlus

With several styles to choose from (wood grain, smooth, staggered shingle panels), there’s HardiePlank siding for every type of home. But the finishing touch of any siding product is the color. With James Hardie ColorPlus Technology siding, you won’t have to worry about cracking, bubbling, or peeling paint again.


Why James Hardie?

James Hardie has been making well designed and high performing products for discerning homeowners for more than 30 years. Fiber cement from James Hardie resists damage from pests, humidity, and freezing unlike wood or vinyl siding. It’s also non-combustible and fire resistant which is an important consideration in the heavily forested PNW.

James Hardie siding also looks significantly more attractive and wood-like than vinyl as it is more than 5 times as thick. Every color and style matches durability with beauty–the perfect combination of form and function.
