Brighten Up Your Exterior Siding


When it comes time to select a siding color, Midwesterners love light hues that brighten up their exterior.

You can opt for cream-colored siding, such as Navajo Beige or Cobble Stone, or go for bright Arctic White, a standard for many Minnesota architectural home styles. Go the way of light gray, the trendiest new hue, with Light Mist—it’s the lightest of the James Hardie collection of grays.

All of the curated ColorPlus® Technology colors James Hardie offers are ready to add character to your home’s exterior, and lucky for you, the product’s ColorPlus Technology is engineered to help resist damaging UV rays, which means your home siding color will last longer and look brighter compared to field-applied paint.

Since these siding and trim colors are going to stick around a while, make them hues you love to see as you pull into the driveway. Here are a few inspiring color choices that’ll lighten up your Midwest home.
