After exploring the exterior home preferences of Northeast homeowners, the results
are in—gray tones are all the rage. The top five colors across the board are grays
and whites. And about 40 percent of Northeast homeowners are opting for some
color in the gray family.
James Hardie heard the call and designed some stylish gray tones now available in
the Northeast. Homeowners can currently clad their homes in Aged Pewter, Gray
Slate, Iron Gray, Night Gray and Pearl Gray.
Besides the sought-out gray hue, there’s the added benefit of James Hardie’s
ColorPlus ® Technology—a baked-on color option that helps resist color loss. This
means your siding will look fresh over time without a ton of maintenance.
