James Hardee’s incredible dream collection of seven hundred amazing colours can appear confusing when scrolling through it the first time. One way to solve this is to decide an overall colour theme first, and then consider subtle variations on it next.
We can take comfort when we admire our completed job from the fact the colours are baked on. Therefore they will resist the ravages of ultraviolet light and we just need to wash them down once or twice a year.
Five Neat Ways to Bring the Dream Collection Alive
Consider the Natural Architecture of Your Home
Does your home have particular features you would like to showcase? Perhaps on the other hand you don’t particularly like the portico over the front door. Shades of your main colour theme can tone down details. While using opposites brings them to the forefront, and makes them stand out proud.
Harmonise with Your Prevailing Landscape Next
If your home overlooks water consider using shades of grey and green from the dream collection that speak to it, and make it seem part of nature. Alternatively, if you enjoy a rugged backdrop of mountains you may prefer a blend russets and browns. Investigate the Vancouver Heritage Foundation’s true colours palette if your home is in traditional style.
Now Consider the Landscaping Around the House
Unless you are doing a total makeover, you can achieve a great deal by blending with the rest of the built environment. You want something that brings out the best of the paving and garden. It also makes sense to complete a colour scheme that does not clash with the neighbours, because buyers tend to look at the houses on either side.
Find Great Ideas in Our Portfolio of Projects
Steal ideas with your eyes as you scroll through our completed jobs on our website. You’ll find much of interest on the James Hardie website too. There is no end to the creative opportunities provided by their dream collection of seven hundred colours. An experienced siding contractor such as SilverLine Exterior Solutions could be your sympathetic sounding board too.
And Finally, Don’t Be Shy, Just Be You
Home is where the heart is. Therefore, the colours we choose with siding and shingles must match what’s closest to our own hearts. If we may make a suggestion, don’t stray too far away from popular colours. Keep it natural. Someday you may want to sell your house and you won’t want to discourage too many buyers.

James Hardie’s Exciting Colour Plus
Fibre Cement Material History and Use

James Hardie has been making fibre-cement boards and strips for over twenty years. During this time they have become a household name throughout North America. And they have been working constantly to reinforce their position. Their Colour Plus Technology remains one of their strongest selling points. This is a system for permanently coating their boards and siding with a vibrant series of colours almost guaranteed to meet everybody’s tastes.
This Gives You One of the Best Maintenance Free Finishes
Hence there’s no need to repaint the exterior of your home unless you change your taste in colour. To keep your finish in tip-top shape all you need do is clean the product with water and a soft brush or cloth, James Hardie further recommends a mild detergent and a soft brush for stubborn dirt or stains.
They provide Color Plus® Touch-up Kits to cover over nicks, scrapes and surplus nail holes that may occur, after filling (as necessary) with cementitious patching compound. However, they suggest replacing the particular board if the damage is more severe.
Being able to readily replace a strip of damaged siding is one of the greatest advantages of choosing a James Hardie product. They are a large international company. Chances are they will be around for a long time to come. We’ve covered some tips to replace
James Hardie’s Amazing Kaleidoscope of Colours
Colour Plus Technology is available in a range of tint themes like boothbay blue, khaki brown, and mountain sage to mention just a few. They combine distinctive beauty and high performance with excellent staying power.
Colour Plus obviously costs more, but it gives you a consistent coating that’s baked in a controlled manufacturing environment. James Hardie provides a 15 year warranty on the Color Plus finished products.
Accordingly you get UV resistance worked into the product, backed by decades of experience and available in over 700 James Hardie Colour Plus finishes now under the Dream Collection. This is definitely something to consider.
