Back when Jo and I were first getting started in construction and renovation, I didn't know what I didn't know. There are plenty of examples of how that's true, but one I remember clearly is calling all exterior plank siding "hardie board". I thought that's what it was called. It wasn't until years later that I realized Hardie® was a specific brand, and their product was the benchmark in the industry.
Jo and I can't believe that things have come full circle with this collaboration we're launching with James Hardie. This is a company that has proven that quality comes first.
We've been using Hardie® siding for over 20 years now and we've learned more and more the difference that quality materials make on a home. It's important to us to know that once we're done and we've handed the keys over, that we've taken care of our homeowners.
A Closer Look At the Magnolia Home James Hardie Collection
After years of using their products on home renovation projects, Chip and Jo have collaborated with James Hardie to create a collection of siding that’s timeless and modern. This brand new collection includes 16 colors that range across a spectrum of earth tones. One of the things that sets Hardie® apart is that the siding arrives ready to install, with the color already baked on. Their unique coloring process helps resist fading over time so that your house maintains its color and texture for the long haul.
Each color is available in several different styles – think shingle, plank, batten – and you can also choose your texture for the finish, giving you total flexibility to mix and match to find what's right for your specific home. Chip and Jo have always appreciated the value of curb appeal, and this collection will help your home stand out, whether you plan to sell one day or simply want to enjoy its beauty for years to come.
Style and Texture
From left to right: shingle, board + batten, and plank. Once you've chosen your style, you can also select from a variety of textures and finishes so your home is truly one of a kind.
Bringing It Home
What we choose for our homes says something about who we are and what we love. Earlier this year, Chip and Jo used Hardie© siding on one of their Fixer Upper: Welcome Home projects. Unlike other projects they'd done for clients, this one was for them. They’d been eyeing the house for years, and when they finally had the chance to buy the home and renovate, Hardie® was their first choice for the exterior. The house was affectionately known as 'Minty Green', and you can see the incredible transformation that came with the installation of Hardie® siding.
