James Hardie Siding Style Options

Aside from the myriad of remarkable benefits and qualities it possesses, James Hardie siding is popular among homeowners for its distinctive appearance and style. In general, James Hardie sidings can be installed in three different ways, all of which have their own advantages and appeal.

Hardie Plank Lap Siding

Lap siding is a method of installing a siding horizontally. This is the standard way of installing sidings in general. Currently, it is the most popular styling option in many James Hardie siding-bearing homes. An approximate of 5.5 million homes have adopted this kind of style in the United States alone. Nonetheless, lap siding is rather popular for its strength, beauty, and durability.

Hardie Panel Vertical Siding

As the name suggests, this style is the opposite of lap siding. It involves installing a siding vertically. Although it’s pretty rare to spot a home with Hardie panel vertical siding, its exceptional value and performance has long been recognized by many homeowners and residential property owners. In addition, vertical siding makes it possible to recreate a unique home exterior through the use of different width panels to achieve an old-fashioned board and batten appearance.


Unbeknownst to many, James Hardie is actually a specific type of fiber cement. Nevertheless, it consists of the same components and materials used as normal fiber cement. Mainly, these are cement, sand, water, and wood fibers. However, what sets it apart is the overall quality of the components used and the distinctive appearance it has. In general, Hardie Siding is considered as the best type of fiber cement available in the siding industry. This is why it has garnered a reputation all on its own as a specific type of siding material in the industry.

James Hardie siding, generally, has a resemblance like that of a wood siding. This gives homes with the said siding a classy, elegant, and timeless appeal. However, far from wood sidings, James Hardie sidings requires little maintenance. Strictly speaking, fiber cement is already relatively known for needing little to no maintenance, but James Hardie displays a remarkable resistance to fading, chipping, and cracking compared to the standard fiber cement siding material. It is also well-known for its superior durability and unbeatable strength that can rival that of a metal siding’s.  However, it is no secret that James Hardie siding installation can be expensive. Nonetheless, it’s a material that is worth every penny for it will stand strong against the test of time and against various threatening elements a home faces in a lifetime. This is why it’s to no surprise at all that it has become the top choice for homeowners who can readily spend a lot for a siding installation.
