Dark Siding Colors
Dark grays, blues and greens can feel both intellectual and modern. When used with white trim, they create drama. CONTRACTOR ADVICE: Works well in old neighborhoods, where a dark house won’t stick out like a sore thumb, or urban environments, where there is a mix of old and new.
Cool Siding Colors
The colors of the sky and water are always calming. Navy feels classy. Robin’s egg feels breezy (why else are porch ceilings throughout the South painted light blue?). CONTRACTOR ADVICE: Gray-blue shades on shingled Cape Cods are classic. But the truth is, gray-blue rarely looks out of place, whether acting as an accent or main color.

That’s why we have provided the vast spectrum for you, creating a palette of colors you sure to love. The basic categories will help you understand colors’ emotional and aesthetic effects, which will in turn help you decide which hues are right for your house siding. What are the benefits of Color Plus Technology? ​James Hardie ColorPlus Technology combines distinct beauty and high performance in a way that no other finish does. It’s the easiest way to choose a gorgeous siding color for your house, and feel confident in its staying power. While all James Hardie siding and trim products are available primed and ready for field painting, when you invest in ColorPlus Technology, you're getting a consistent coat of proprietary finish that was baked-on in a closely controlled factory environment. That means even coverage and color that will last for years and years. It helps resist fading from UV rays, so your color will stay vibrant for longer than regular paint.

Instead of feeling overwhelmed by siding choices, you’ll feel empowered by the many tried-and-true options.

Neutral Siding Colors
Neutral rules the suburbs. These shades are safe, but also sophisticated. When accessorized with black or a darker color, a neutral can look downright chic. CONTRACTOR ADVICE: Great for contemporary construction. Play with textures and use different tones for trim or in horizontal bands to add interest.
Fresh Siding Colors
Yellows and greens evoke freshness. Yellow is sunshine, and will make a house look happy. Yellow-based greens are linked with new growth, while deeper greens evoke maturity. CONTRACTOR ADVICE: Choose greens for regions that have lots of old, leafy trees (not the Southwest,that is). Yellows are best for more casual houses, such as bungalows and cottages.

Warm Siding Colors

​​Reds, deep oranges, and golden yellows bring to mind autumn leaves in the North East. More muted tones recall the terra-cotta roofs and desert sands of the Southwest.

CONTRACTOR ADVICE: Gray-toned reds are best suited for traditional houses in rural towns and older cities in the Northeast. Browns, warm reds and yellows in subtle tones are great for trims on a Craftsman, adobe, or rustic ranch—in any setting.

Light Siding Colors​
Whites and soft pastels are pure, clean, new and bright. But all light and no dark can be boring. Add other hues to add interest, personality and drama. CONTRACTOR ADVICE: Great on houses with a Colonial inspiration. A white house can look beautiful on a large green lawn. A pastel A-frame cottage can look so sweet and charming. White is always lovely for trim.
