Homes with American Character

Walking past a home with American accents—think breeze-blowing flags, oversized porches, and a white picket fence—evokes a warm and welcoming vibe. These homes just seem to conjure up the feeling of summertime, the smell of a fired-up grill or the taste of iced-cold lemonade—all seeming to say, America.

We decided to take a closer look at their siding: the colors, the durability and the timeless and traditional style. Each is clad in James Hardie ColorPlus® products, made up of hues that are crisp, clean and classic, such as Evening Blue, Arctic White and Iron Gray.

James Hardie’s ColorPlus® Technology is engineered to help resist damaging UV rays, so your color will stay vibrant longer compared to paint on wood or wood based products.  

Here’s a peek at a few James Hardie clad homes with true American character:

American Beauty 

This suburban home with a red brick front is clad in HardiePlank® lap siding in Evening Blue. The straight edge HardieShingle® siding in Timber Bark clads the home's gables. The darker blue shutters complement the rich blue lap siding hue and the American flag blowing the breeze makes this single family home feel downright patriotic.

Patriotic Porch 

The front of this home feels like a relaxed summer day. The wide porch and the neutral siding hues all add to the calm-meets-welcoming feeling. This home is clad in HardiePlank siding in the Timber Bark and Khaki Brown, which goes well withe white columns and black roof.
