New James Hardie Fiber Cement Dormer Upgrade

New Pella Windows and James Hardie panels and trim

New James Hardie Fiber Cement Cedar Mill panels and James Hardie Color Plus trim added to this beautiful family home on the north west side of Indianapolis.  This home had deteriorated wood lap siding on the dormers and out dated windows.  Lathrop Contracting installed new energy efficient Pella windows and insulated them with spray foam window insulation.  Lathrop Contracting removed the old siding and covered the substrate in synthetic house wrap to protect from moisture buildup.  Lathrop Contracting then installed James Hardie Cedar Mill Color Plus fiber cement panels to the dormers.  Finally, we dressed it out in James Hardie Color Plus fiber cement trim.

James Hardie fiber cement is:

  • Engineered specifically for climates with freezing temperatures, extreme seasonal temperature variations, and snow and ice

  • Resists cracking, rotting, swelling, and damage from mold

  • Fire resistant and non-combustible

What’s more important than making a good first impression?

Making a good first impression that lasts. That’s the thinking behind the James Hardie® ColorPlus® system. You get the natural beauty of wood and the long-lasting durability and low maintenance of fiber-cement—all enhanced by the instant appeal of eye-catching color.

The Value of Color

Choosing a color for a home can be a tough decision. That is why
they created an online design tool to help you find a siding color that
is just right for your homes. You can design your exterior simply
by logging on to JamesHardie.com. The design tool allows you to
visualize how each ColorPlus® Technology color, product, texture
and exposure will look on your home.

All the products you need

Along with the aesthetic appeal of traditional lap siding, James Hardie
offers a full product line of lap, panel, shingle, soffit and trim for a
low maintenance exterior of exceptional beauty and durability.

A finish unlike any other

They use an exclusive, fiber-cement-specific paint formulation with
a multi-coat, baked-on color application process. James Hardie
ColorPlus® Technology ensures consistent full-paint coverage –
one that cannot be duplicated by a third-party pre-finisher or on
site painting.

Protection you can count on

Their proprietary paint includes a special coating for mar and
abrasion resistance, while a factory-applied protective laminate
protects the products finish during installation.

The peace of mind you deserve

James Hardie backs its siding with a 30-year limited non-prorated
product warranty. HardieTrim boards and our ColorPlus finish
comes with a 15-year limited warranty. All from the manufacturer of
America’s #1 brand of siding.
