Why James Hardie?
How to install HardiePlank® cladding
If you’re looking for a versatile, low maintenance weatherboard with a natural and beautiful texture, look no further than James Hardie fibre cement cladding. It’s the facade of choice for builders, architects and homeowners alike, protecting and beautifying millions of homes worldwide.
Create a truly unique look by combining colours, textures and materials, and give your home a distinctive character that endures.
Horizontal or vertical? Half wrap or full wrap? Or complete your home with wood or render. Combine your cladding with brick or stone. From orange brick through to grey slate or yellow stone, with our extensive range of 21 colours, we have a weatherboard to suit any regional brick or stone.
With so much choice the design possibilities are endless.
Horizontal half wrap
Half wrapped homes offer a more modern twist on the classical shiplap style, enabling a mix of materials to be used. Here Iron Grey cladding complements white render to offer a strong design
Horizontal full wrap
Full wrap horizontal lap is often used to give a more classical finish. A time honoured facade style, lap cladding has been used in UK house design since the 16th century.
A mix of both horizontal, vertical and diagonal cladding styles can really add architectural interest to a property. Use the same colour or complementary shades to create curb appeal. Or even mix both our cladding products Hardie® Panel and Hardie® Plank cladding.
HardieTrim™ finishing is that final touch that completes your home’s design. Accentuate corners, columns, fascias, doors, windows and more with our range of both aluminium and fibre cement trims.
Either an exact colour match or lighter trim colours are usually the safest choice, since the eye goes to the lightest colour in a combination first and, in most cases, you are using trim to emphasise your home’s most interesting architectural features.
For those feeling brave, you can also use contrasting colours on your windows and soffits against your chosen facade to really enhance a home’s design. Anthracite Grey windows can look stunning offset against Pearl Grey or Sail Cloth trim.
