James Hardie Siding and Trim

James Hardie fiber cement siding is one of the most technologically advanced siding materials you will find in Edmonton. James Hardie’s HardieZone system ensures that the siding installed on your home is specifically engineered for Edmonton's climate! James Hardie siding is hail resistant, pest resistant, and non-combustible (wont burn)! 

James Hardie backs their siding with a 30 year warranty on their siding and a 15 year warranty on their ColorPlus paint. Both of these warranties are transferable to the next owner of your home if you decide to sell in the future! If you’re looking for a knowledgeable James Hardie contractor to help you renovate your home, you can count on Blue Jay Exterior Renovations for expert advice and professional installation!

James Hardie offers a number of different styles for their HardiePlank lap siding. The most popular Hardie product in Edmonton is 7” exposure, Cedar Mill HardiePlank. This sounds complicated, but all it means is that the siding has a wood like texture and is 7” tall!

Cedar Mill HardiePlank lap siding combines the character of real wood siding with the durability of fiber cement. It resists moisture damage, hail, and pests (including woodpeckers!) and is tested to withstand Edmonton’s extreme weather cycles.

HardiePlank lap siding is also available in 6” and 5” exposures, as well as with a smooth or a beaded texture, all in 23 factory colours. This means that no matter your style, there’s a James Hardie siding to turn your home into your dream home!

James Hardie siding is one of the most durable siding materials available in Edmonton, so it only makes sense to pair it with trim that performs just as well. That's why Blue Jay Exterior Renovations installs HardieTrim with all James Hardie siding packages!

James Hardie’s HardieTrim is an extruded fiber cement trim product. What does “extruded” mean? It means that HardieTrim is manufactured as a solid piece, with no glues holding it together! That makes HardieTrim more durable than the wood trims that most other companies install, and it looks better too!

Available in 10 colours with smooth or wood textures, HardieTrim is the only trim product engineered with James Hardie’s HardieZone system!

The perfect home deserves the perfect accent: James Hardie HardieShingle! HardieShingle is the perfect way to complete the traditional design of your home without breaking the bank.

For years, homeowners who wanted a rustic accent detail have been forced to choose between authentic cedar shakes and their two to four year maintenance cycles or vinyl shingles, which are low maintenance but don't have the same warmth as real cedar.

HardieShingle is the best of both worlds: now you can have the authentic look of a real shake product with the durability and low maintenance of fiber cement! These fiber cement shingles are available in a straight or a staggered edge pattern, whichever suits your style!


james hardie colorplus paint

All James Hardie products sold in Edmonton are available with ColorPlus finishing technology. James Hardie offers 23 ColorPlus options for their siding and shingles, and 10 options for trim. The James Hardie ColorPlus palette has been professionally curated to ensure that no matter which colour you choose for your siding, there are coordinating and contrasting colours available – let your creativity run wild!

ColorPlus is a specially formulated coating that James Hardie designed specifically for use with their fiber cement products. It’s not available in any store, but you can buy touch up kits to keep your home looking tip top. ColorPlus is warranted against peeling, cracking, and chipping for 15 years. The UV protection baked into the coating ensures that Hardie siding and trim fades evenly and more slowly than a similar colour of vinyl siding.
