Contrary to what some might think, even a minor detail such as the trim on your new siding can have a large impact on your home’s curb appeal. Remember: When it comes to exterior design, consistency is key. And to ensure the consistency of the quality of your new siding, it’s best to stick to trusted brands such as James Hardie®.
To put the finishing touch on your new siding and window installation, we recommend choosing HardieTrim® boards. Why use HardieTrim instead of other brands?
HardieTrim lasts longer than other brands because it’s made of fiber cement, which lasts longer than oriented strand board (OSB) and wood composites (two materials commonly used to manufacture siding trim). Fiber cement is durable enough to resist extreme temperatures and withstand the impact from hailstones and wind-driven debris, making it the perfect material for the Minnesota climate.
Over time, exposure to ultraviolet rays can cause the paint on your siding and trim to fade. That’s why you need to occasionally apply a fresh coat of paint. But, if you used James Hardie siding and HardieTrim boards, you don’t have to worry about repainting your siding. Like all James Hardie products, HardieTrim boards feature ColorPlus® Technology, a unique, factory-applied color system that protects your siding from damaging UV rays and keeps its colors vibrant.
Exterior Design Tips: Achieving Color Harmony With Your Trim
As mentioned earlier, consistency is key when it comes to your exterior design, which is why your siding’s trim should complement the rest of your exterior. Here’s a pro-tip: Stick to using neutral colors, which complement a wide variety of colors and never go out of style. If you’re having trouble coordinating your exterior’s colors, don’t hesitate to consult one of your local siding, doors and window installers.
