Hardie Board Garage


This homeowner used beautiful wood corner braces to create the effect of a railroad station aesthetic on their garage. To add to that visual, they were looking for a red base colour with a transition to gray for the middle and upper portion of the garage.

James Hardie 6.25” Plank was selected in Countrylane Red and Gray Slate. Wanting to avoid using caulking around the corner braces, and trying to avoid what is often an unsightly transition between two colours of caulking on the same line, we proposed Easy Trim Reveals for the corners and most trim/plank intersections.

The Easy Trim was custom painted to match the siding, and the result was a very sleek and clean finish. The resulting look lets the braces and design speak for themselves rather than attention being drawn to caulking and large corner trims.
