ColorPlus® Technology: Color That Lasts
Baked-on ColorPlus® Technology has greater resistance to fading, chipping and cracking than painted siding, which means less maintenance for you.
Hardie board’s pre-colored products use the patented “baked on” color system to add a layer of tough and durable color to the outside of the boards before they arrive. This coating is tougher and more chip and scratch resistant than ordinary paint products.
Hardie Board Siding Installation
Hardie board siding products are delivered to the job in standard stock length bundles. These boards and products can be cut to exact measurements on site, so there’s very little waste and every surface is completely covered and protected.
This kind of fiber cement siding is usually installed using nails or screws, with a pneumatic nailer being one of the most efficient installation options.
Hardie board siding is installed over sheathing, so whether you have a new build or are updating an existing home, you want to be sure you have a clean, undamaged layer below. This will provide the waterproof layer your home needs, so if there is any damage or your sheathing is old, it might be an idea to replace that too.
Once the siding is secured in place, trim is attached to cover and protect all the edges, which adds to the design style of the home.
To ensure the best outcome for your fiber cement installation, be sure you choose a certified installer.
