James Hardie® ColorPlus® Technology

James Hardie® siding with ColorPlus® Technology combines its advanced fiber cement formula with a factory-applied, baked-on finish. The unique James Hardie® process involves applying multiple coats of paint to the exterior siding which results in finishes that last two times longer. James Hardie®  ColorPlus® technology finish is backed by a 15-year limited warranty that covers both paint and labor.     

Siding of Many Colors

Moss Home Services, in its partnership with James Hardie®, is able to provide our Northern Virginia clients with specific color choices designed by Leslie Harrington. These colors complement our climate, weather patterns, and environment.

Tips for Color Selection

James Hardie® suggests the following when choosing colors for your Northern Virginia home’s siding.

• Combinations with a lighter trim color will emphasize the trim on your home

• Combinations with soft contrast between body and trim colors will make your home appear larger

• Use deeper body colors for a warm, personalized, and a cozy feeling

• Look for colors that align with your neighborhood or environment

• Use a third color for special details that you want to highlight**

James Hardie® takes pride in its process of maintaining consistency and integrity with its color application and longevity. It is concerned with accuracy, color matching, and fade resistance. And because of this continued focus on climatic damages to siding, James Hardie® has developed paint and siding that is specifically engineered to avoid damage from the sun’s UV rays – ColorPlus® technology gives siding up to 30% better fade resistance.
