Living On The Edge: A Look At Straight Edge Shingle Siding

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017 by Ted Swanson

If you’re looking for home siding with clean lines and sophisticated style, look to straight edge HardieShingle® siding. It’s an easy way to add straight lines to your exterior, while sticking with a classic shingle look. 

In addition to its timeless style, the durability of HardieShingle siding makes it long lasting, too. James Hardie® fiber cement products are engineered to help withstand damage from pests, fire and Midwest weather (such as freezing temperatures, moisture, snowfall, ice, hail, wind and extreme temperature variations).

HardieShingle siding comes in a variety of styles, but we’re impartial to the straight edge HardieShinglesiding with its more classic-meets-modern design. If you crave a look with a hint of timeless sophistication, check out these homes clad in straight edge HardieShingle siding with ColorPlus® Technology finish:


Pristine in Cream

We love the chic look of this suburban home clad in straight edge HardieShingle siding in Sail Cloth. The HardieTrim® boards in Arctic White match well with the white garage door and entryway pillars. When paired with red brick, the straight edge shingles possess a traditional-meets-contemporary look.

Shingles in Sage

The large front gable of this home is clad in straight edge HardieShingle siding in bold Mountain Sage. The rest of the home is clad in HardiePlank® lap siding in a ligher shade of green called Heathered Moss. The HardieTrim boards in Khaki Brown unify the two green tones and the pop of red on the door and shutters add interest to the exterior palette.
