Colorplus technology is James Hardie’s factory baked on paint finish that comes with a 15 yr finish warranty that covers both paint and labor.  After testing over 2000 paint formulas, the paint formulation was found which is formulated specifically for fiber cement material.  The proprietary process involves applying consistent, multiples coats giving an end result that is a beautiful consistent finish that lasts up to 2X longer than other finishes. A baked-on coating offers maximum durability and resistance to prolonged exposure to freezing climate and moisture contact.  It provides a longer paint cycle that on average can help save you over $5000 over 15 years.

Specially formulated paint stands up to UV levels in a way few field-applied paints can, offering up to 30% more fade resistance. ColorPlus Technology finishes are warranted for 15 years against cracks, chips and peeling. A warranty that is not feasibly possible for natural wood siding products such as cedar siding.  Color integrity is a critical part of James Hardie® ColorPlus® technology. It includes color accuracy, color-matching James Hardie siding products, consistency of the paint application, fade resistance and finish longevity.
