HardiePlank, HardieShingle, HardiePanel and the Artisan Collection by James Hardie are some of the different types of siding offered by James Hardie. The company also manufactures several other enhancement products for its siding, including HardieTrim boards and HardieSoffit panels.
HardiePlank's traditional lap siding is the most popular of the company's siding products and one of the best-selling brands in America, as of 2015. It provides the traditional look that goes well with many architectural styles. The siding comes in a variety of colors and several different finish options, including select cedarmill, smooth, beaded cedarmill and beaded smooth.
James Hardie's shingle siding is designed for authenticity and appeal on Cape Cod-style homes. Its staggered edge or straight edge panels can look appealing on other cottage-style homes as well. HardiePanel vertical siding can provide a minimalist look with vertical lines or a rustic board-and-batten appearance. The woodgrain Sierra 8, select cedarmill, smooth and stucco finishes further accentuate the desired aesthetic.
Shadows cast by the thick boards of the Artisan Collection by James Hardie add dimension and depth. It is the company's premier lap siding, and its tongue and groove joints provide low-profile seams. The corners of the thick boards can be mitered to create classic design features.
