Why We Use James Hardie HardieTrim® Boards

Fiber cement siding looks beautiful. It looks even more beautiful when it has all the right finishing touches added. Trim rounds out the design of the home and can highlight special elements of it. A house simply does not look right without it.

That is why James Hardie offers an entire line of trim boards. With the different options you are sure to find the right trim for your home. Best of all, it is all made from the same durable fiber cement that you know and love.

With the HardieTrim® products you can accentuate different elements of your home, including fascia, doors, windows, corners, and more. James Hardie offers a huge selection of colors to choose from to complement the color of your siding. Additionally, you can get the boards primed for paint if you prefer that.

We want to give you a quick overview to let you know what options are available to you. As far as the trim boards themselves go you can pick from any of the following:

  • 4/4 Rustic HardieTrim® Boards

These boards have a texture that looks very much like wood. This wood-like texture gives the boards a rustic and vintage look. However, because the boards are made out of fiber cement, they are resistant to warping and rotting, unlike real wood.

The HardieTrim® boards come in the same wonderful color options as the siding. With the James Hardie ColorPlus® Technology the colors last long and are brilliant. You can pick from both the Statement Collection and the Dream Collection of colors, so that you can find just the right color.

  • 4/4 Smooth HardieTrim® Boards

As the name implies, these boards have a smooth texture. This simplicity is elegant and timeless and will serve you well for many years to come. These boards are also available in all of the over 700 colors from both of James Hardie’s color collections. You are sure to find a color you love and which will complement the color of your siding.

  • 5/4 Rustic HardieTrim® Boards

The boards are thicker than the 4/4 boards above but otherwise very similar. They also have the appearance of wood and the other features mentioned. You cannot go wrong with the classic colors of the Statement Collection and you are sure to increase the curb appeal of your home with these trim boards.

  • 5/4 Smooth HardieTrim® Boards

Just like the 4/4 smooth boards, these boards will give you home’s exterior a sleeker, more modern look. They look crisp and come in beautiful colors. They are thicker but otherwise the same as the 4/4 boards above. It really only is a question of taste if you prefer boards with wood texture or smooth boards.

  • Rustic Grain© Batten Boards

With these boards you can create the traditional look of board and batten siding but with fiber cement. These boards look rustic and charming at the same time. The batten boards have the appearance of wood and come in a variety of beautiful and long-lasting colors, thanks to the ColorPlus® Technology used.

  • Smooth Batten Boards

These boards combine the traditional look of board and batten siding with the modern element of smooth texture and fiber cement. Again, you can choose from brilliant colors to create the siding look you have always wanted for your home. Your home will look unique and contemporary with these trim boards.
