ColorPlus® Technology

One more reason that James Hardie® can guarantee your home's fiber cement siding will look amazing for years to come.


All James Hardie® siding and trim products are available primed and ready for field painting. But when you invest in ColorPlus® Technology, you won’t only get gorgeous color—you’ll get color that lasts longer than a typical paint job.

The James Hardie ColorPlus proprietary process involves applying multiple coats of paint that was created especially for the demands a tough climate places on your home's exterior siding. The paint is actually baked into the siding board to offer maximum durability and resistance to prolonged exposure to freezing temperatures as well as higher UV, ensuring a consistent, lasting finish every time.

  • DURABLE FINISH: multiple coats (50 percent more than your average house painter uses) of proprietary finish are applied to every surface and edge of our siding and trim, leaving no spot uncovered.
  • BAKED-ON BOND: Between coats, the finish is cured in a controlled environment for an even stronger bond that resists chipping, peeling and cracking.
  • UV-RAY RESISTANCE: Paint and other siding finishes applied in the field can dull substantially over time. ColorPlus® Technology is specifically engineered to help resist damaging UV rays, so your color will stay vibrant for longer.
  • GUARANTEED TO LAST LONGER: The ColorPlus® finish warranty guarantees your home siding will look amazing, for years to come ... a 15-year limited warranty that covers paint and labor, protecting against peeling, cracking, and chipping.

The ColorPlus® Technology

James Hardie — the largest producer of fiber-cement siding in North America — is the only siding manufacturer that controls its siding products from the initial mixing of the cement to final painting in one facility. To ensure that every siding board meets James Hardie's high standards, over 41 quality assurance checks are made throughout the manufacturing process and each batch of siding is also checked at three outside testing facilities to monitor long-term durability.


Siding Color Integrity Siding Color Integrity

Have you ever taken a gallon of paint back to the store because it didn't match the rest of your project? How would you feel if one side of your house siding was a shade darker than the rest? James Hardie's color variance accuracy standards for our ColorPlus® Technology siding finish are three times stricter than what's acceptable for most "store-bought" paints and more tightly controlled than the automotive industry.


ColorPlus® Color Palette

Choosing from thousands of paint swatches can become extremely frustrating, confusing and neverending. The ColorPlus Color options make your selection much easier and you can have confidence that you're getting a color you'll love! Leading color experts have created a stunning selection of colors that we know look great on exterior siding—so you can stop second-guessing yourself.

Ask your EXOVATIONS Sales Consultant to show you samples of each of the ColorPlus colors. Mix 2, 3 or 4 colors together to create a stunning appearance.
