The Benefits of James Hardie ColorPlus® Technology

Since James Hardie does color like no other siding company you get some very distinct advantages in choosing a James Hardie ColorPlus product.

  1. James Hardie ColorPlus Technology Comes In Gorgeous, In-Style Color: Knowing which colors are right for your home can be difficult.  If you are only a shade off on a brown, for instance, your home can go from beautiful to botched in a brushstroke.  James Hardie has its finger on the pulse of home style and every color they offer is carefully selected to be a crowd-pleaser for years to come.
  2. Pre-painted James Hardie Adds Up To Long-Lasting Color: James Hardie ColorPlus Technology is proven to protect your Centennial home better than almost any other finish on the market.  Specifically designed for intense weather regions, you get protection from the intense sun, wind, and hail that is a hallmark to Colorado. you’ll get color that lasts longer than a typical paint job.
  3. Pre-painted James Hardie Plank Means Less Upkeep: Maintaining any siding is difficult–especially here in Centennial where the sun is intense and the weather troublesome.  However, when you trust your home siding color to James Hardie you know it won’t fade, crack, peel or chip–because it is engineered to be tough specifically in our sunny, arid, hail-prone region.
