Inspiration for your home's exterior

As most of you know, I’ve been knee deep in home renovations. We’ve already done a lot on the inside, but now it’s time to give our home exterior some attention. We all know that curb appeal and exterior esthetics is all important to make your home feel like your castle. My talented Hubs has the “can do” ability, so I just need to come up with the ideas for that perfect end result. With the help of my partner, James Hardie, there is so much information and inspiration for your home exterior.

I’ve recently learned about James Hardie products – their diverse and detailed product selection will help you create a historically accurate, architecturally correct and flat-out gorgeous home. James Hardie products are well known throughout the country and grace the sides of more than 5.5 million homes across America. In the remodeling industry, they’re known for the beauty and durability of their products. But what I’ve found most helpful is their awesome website which gives you the design ideas and product guide to achieve the customized results you’re looking for.
The front of my house is like a blank canvas right now – just two windows and lots of boring siding. I’m ready to create a design to welcome us home and invite others to come in.

We live in the west, and siding or stucco is the choice for exterior which is exposed to Mother Nature all day, every day, for years. Weather, water, time, fire and pests—all can lead to trouble. I’ve learned that James Hardie’s hardworking products are engineered to stand up beautifully, whatever the elements. At jameshardie.com you can enter your zip code and find out the right product for your region. Then have a blast looking at all their design options. I’m inspired! They have HardiePlank®, HardieTrim®, HardieShingle®, HardieSoffit®, HardiePanel®, HardieBacker®, HardieWrap® and the Artisan® collection for the perfect look.
