Turns out, you don’t have to be a sailor to love the coastal look. It’s easy to gather inspiration from East Coast homes—staggered edge and straight edge shingle siding, rich blue and clean white hues, and all the beachy details.
The East Coast is known for its Cape Cod style homes with nautical-chic colors. If you opt for James Hardie’s ColorPlus® palette, you’ll get color that lasts longer than a typical paint job. James Hardie’s ColorPlus Technology is made to resist damaging UV rays, to help your color stay vibrant, longer with less maintenance compared to field-applied paint.
Here are some homes inspired by the East Coast—they make a re-side project look like smooth sailing.
Shingles by the Sea
This coastal home is clad in straight edge HardieShingle® siding in a Light Mist. We love the protection that the shingles provide; after all, they’re engineered to help protect against the seaside winds.
Coastal Cobble Stone
This East Coast home is sided in HardiePlank® lap siding and straight edge HardieShingle siding in Cobble Stone. The tin awning, wood stained door, black windows, white trim and limestone details stand out since the home is clad in a stylish neutral.
This beach house is clad in HardiePlank lap siding in Boothbay Blue. The dusty blue hue blends with the home’s backyard inlet. Any range of blue—from Boothbay to Deep Ocean—seems to feel at home on the coast.
Besides the design and style that James Hardie building products offer, they also provide durability and confidence. James Hardie engineers devised the HardieZone® System to provide you with an exterior product specifically engineered for your climate. The system takes into account climatic variables of the East Coast that affect the long-term performance of siding. This means you’ll benefit from siding that lasts longer than wood with lower maintenance.
