What makes James Hardie fiber cement siding’s colors stay vibrant for so long? Why are they so confident in their color’s inability to fade that they warranty it to be fade-resistant for up to 15 years? Hardie siding comes with several industry-leading features, including ColorPlus™ Technology—a specialized factory technique for applying a color finish to the siding.
ColorPlus Technology optimizes adhesion to give you longer-lasting color and a lower maintenance finish you’ll enjoy for years. Read on to discover what makes James Hardie siding colors last so long and how they can make your home look its best.
How James Hardie Siding Colors Last So Long
ColorPlus Technology explained
The Hardie company finishes their amazing siding products in their controlled factory setting, so you get a unified color application that looks great years after it’s applied. You get beautiful colors with staying power.
Each coat of your siding’s finish is applied indoors where the wind and debris won’t affect it while it dries, so there are no mistakes such as drips or inconsistent color.
Between each coat, the color is cured to ensure a stronger bond that withstands chipping, peeling, and cracking (the things that make siding look bad and make it susceptible to damaging water infiltration).
The value of UV resistance
While traditional exterior paint fades over time due to its exposure to UV rays, ColorPlus Technology gives your siding extra protection from the sun’s damaging rays. Its built-in UV resistance ensures its color will stay vibrant for years.
Because James Hardie offers ColorPlus Technology on their siding panels, trim, and soffits, you can enjoy a cohesive look on your home exterior.
