About HardiePlank Fiber Cement Siding
If you’re looking for superior durability and the timeless look of woodgrain without the maintenance, James Hardie is the perfect siding choice. Compared to other siding materials, fiber cement products stand up to weather, moisture, heat and insects like no other siding can.
With Hardie’s exclusive ColorPlus® Technology, multiple coats of color are baked onto the board in a controlled factory environment and a proprietary finish is applied, designed to resist UV rays so that your color will stay vibrant for longer. You can choose from a curated selection of stunning exterior colors, or you can have your siding primed to be painted later.
HardiePlank® comes in multiple width options and is available in both Smooth and Select Cedarmill finishes.
