Turn Heads with an Exterior Pop Color

If your home’s siding is a more conventional hue, you can punch up your exterior with a bold door color, siding color or a collection of colors.

When a neutral doesn’t excite you, explore other options.

Selecting vivid and complementary siding shades can take some time, but if you go with James Hardie’s ColorPlus® Technology, you'll have an array of well-curated palettes with finishes that resist fading and last longer than a typical paint job. ColorPlus Technology is specifically engineered to help resist damaging UV rays, which means vibrant colors with less maintenance compared to field-applied paint.

Pump up your main siding color. This new home siding installation in Hinsdale, IL is clad in lap siding in Countrylane Red color with Khaki Brown HardiePanel® vertical siding and HardieTrim® batten boards in the gables. The vibrant red color feels right at home on this Midwest beauty.

Go for a bright door. The neutral James Hardie® siding and trim colors may suggest more of a conservative-looking colonial, but the home’s bold blue front door adds the kind of interest that turn heads. Complementary colors are an ideal choice for when you want something to stand out, and creamy neutrals paired with a cobalt blue fall in the complementary color family. The blue hue looks polished and inviting next to the creamy trim, and the wreath adds an inviting touch that seems to say, “Come on in.”

Perk up your palette. With the ColorPlus palette, it’s easy to blend siding styles and colors and still retain a cohesive look. This home merges HardiePlank lap siding in Evening Blue with straight edge HardieShingle® siding in Khaki Brown and HardieTrim boards in Navajo Beige. The dark shutter hue and the tin awnings add even more interest to this personality-packed stunner.

How can you punch up your home’s exterior look? Use James Hardie’s ColorPlus palette, and if you’re intimidated to take the leap to clad your home in a bold hue or splash on a brighter door shade, try out the new James Hardie Home Color Tool. It’s a simple way to explore your color options and get a taste of the hues before you commit. Trust us, you’ll be pleased as punch.

Mark and his team did a terrific job and I could not be more pleased with the final work! Throughout whole siding installation process I was kept well informed about the progress and what will be next steps in the process. I'm living in Arlington Heights and anyone who is looking for great siding contractor can stop by my house and check their amazing work. I also plan on hiring them again for another siding project. That would be my parent's home. 🙂

I researched over 30 companies, and had 5 come out to my house to give me estimates to install new vinyl siding. I ended up going with Smardbuild, and I am very happy that I did. They showed up on time, and finished the entire job within a week. And the quality of the work is the best part. They are perfectionists! I have never seen attention to detail like this. They even went above and beyond the job requirements. They installed aluminum flashing around my sliding glass door to make it look nicer, and that was not even part of the job. And to top it off, they installed 2 new wall lanterns that I bought at Home Depot.

We used Mark and his Smardbuild team to replace our roof, soffits, fascia, siding, upstairs windows, gutters and front door. All work performed is top notch. We went with Hardie soffits and fascia since we had prior issues with carpenter bees drilling holes in our old, wooden soffits. In my opinion Smardbuild is the best with Hardie products. Everything looks great. It took us a while to finally settle on a color for the siding and Smardbuild was quite patient with our process. After having issues with contractors in the past, it was refreshing to work with such a professional team that actually cares about the quality of their work. Thanks Smardbuild.
