Picking the Color

For the house's new exterior, the owners chose HardiePlank Select CedarMill siding, in Heathered Moss with Mountain Sage accents.

Built to Last

James Hardie has developed the Hardie-Zone system to create siding specifically tailored to any climatic area.

Curb Appeal

To give the house a sophisticated exterior, the front elevation was accented with HardieShingle siding.

Completing the Look

To complete the new look, the windows were trimmed with smooth HardieTrim boards, and the soffits were finished with vented HardieSoffit panels.
