Depending on the exterior design style you’re seeking, James Hardie® siding and trim have you covered. There’s the classic horizontal boards like HardiePlank® lap siding, interesting staggered or straight edge HardieShingle® siding, and the unique HardiePanel® vertical siding.
We love homes that incorporate HardiePanel vertical siding because the siding choice adds a visual punch—it’s unique and modern without feeling too trendy. Whether it’s in the gables, as an accent or cladding an entire exterior, vertical siding is uncommon enough that it turns heads.
So, how can you use HardiePanel vertical siding in your residing project? Here are a few inspiring examples of vertical siding done up right:
This contemporary home is clad in HardiePanel vertical siding and HardieTrim batten boards in Arctic White. The choice of vertical siding and the crisp white color make this home look modern and homey.
This Midwest home is clad in HardiePlank lap siding in Autumn Tan and Navajo Beige with HardiePanel vertical siding in the gables in the same Navajo Beige. From the curb, the eye is drawn to the vertical siding in the home’s gables, which seems to elongate the look of the home.
Half and Half
This home’s bottom half is clad in HardiePanel vertical siding and the top half is clad in HardiePlank lap siding, both in Arctic White. The variation of the siding adds interest to the home’s exterior, and the consistent color adds cohesion.
