Create a Classic with James Hardie

There’s a shared architectural heritage that connects a farmhouse in the Great Plains to a mid-century modern home in the Pacific Northwest. It’s a design aesthetic that honors the history of the surrounding community while celebrating individuality.

Endless Combinations

James Hardie offers the right textures, widths and colors to complement the style of home you desire.

Add strong horizontal lines with HardiePlank® lap siding. Adorn gables and dormers with HardieShingle® siding. Display a rustic board and batten look with HardiePanel® vertical siding and HardieTrim® boards.

Achieve a specific traditional aesthetic, or harmonize elements for an updated and unique design.

Substance & Style

Your classic home requires both substance and style. Keep your design simple, without being simplistic. Make it complex, without becoming complicated.

No matter your taste, James Hardie siding and trim will lend your home’s design a look that’s as timeless as its performance is enduring.

Building Sustainably

James Hardie’s long-lasting products enrich communities with enduring and sustainable structures. Leading home design expert, Marianne Cusato, describes the value of traditional architecture, “It’s not a style, nor is it nostalgia. It’s a way of building that is based on common sense and innovation. It’s the evolution of the best of what has come before into something that’s not only practical and beautiful for today but timeless for the future.”
