James Hardie® Offers Many Fiber Cement Siding Options for Twin Cities Homes

Real estate professionals will tell you that if you can only make one home improvement this year, make it an exterior project.  The outside of your home is just as important (if not more) as the inside. Make sure that the siding you put on your home should be able to withstand the elements that assault it, while also providing the beautiful appeal you want.

For siding that meets both requirements, we highly recommend fiber cement siding from James Hardie®. This siding (as well as coordinating trim products) is available in a variety of styles and colors, giving you the chance to get a truly custom look for the exterior of your home. 


With such a diverse selection of fiber cement siding currently available, everyone is able to choose the siding that goes along with the theme of their home. It will fit the architecture and give you the protection and beauty you desire.

HardiePlank® Lap Siding

Providing a full spectrum of colors and looks, you can choose this siding option that gives off a classic look. It can cross over many architectural styles, so you can get the look and feel that you want, no matter what your home’s design is.

HardieShingle® Siding

This siding looks like shingles neatly placed in rows.  It is available in both smooth edge and dog-eared (staggered edge) style.  This siding profile is a great choice for those Cape Cod-type homes that need that timeless, historic look.

Another use for this siding style is as an accent on a particular section of the home you’d like to call attention to or highlight.  It’s used most often on the upper parts of gables.  With the security of fiber cement and the look that shows off the gables, you can have the best looking home on the block

HardiePanel® Vertical Siding

A bit different from the horizontal vinyl siding that you’re normally used to seeing on the outside of homes, this vertical siding protects and looks great while standing out from the others that you normally see. It is simple, yet beautiful. It can be used on the entire home or as an accent as well.

HardieTrim® Boards

Complement or contrast the outside of your home with the best looking trim that goes along with your siding when you select trim products from James Hardie®. You can mix and match to make your home distinctive.  It just makes sense to select trim that is as durable and well made as your siding.

HardieSoffit® Panels

Soffit panels add a little extra flare and protection where it is needed. Once the siding is installed, you can choose extras to add along with it, like soffit panels. Plus, this soffit material resists those pests that would otherwise do damage at your roof’s edge.

But wait…there’s more!  James Hardie is also pleased to offer their Artisan Collection, as well as HardieWrap® Weather Barriers, HardieBacker® Cement Board and so many other beautiful options.
