What is James Hardie siding ColorPlus Technology?
James Hardie siding has multiple coats (50 percent more than your average house painter uses) of proprietary finish to every surface and edge of the siding and trim, leaving no spot uncovered. Between coats, the paint finish is cured with a baked-on bond in a controlled environment for an even stronger bond that resists chipping, peeling and cracking. ColorPlus Technology resists fading form UV-Rays and looks good for longer compared with vinyl siding which has a tendency to get brittle and fade in the sun over time.
James Hardie Warranties
James Hardie offers a non-prorated 30 year limited, transferable warranty on the boards themselves (substrate). They also offer a separate ColorPlus Technology warranty that gives a 15 year limited warranty that covers paint and labor, protecting against peeling, cracking, and chipping.
