Strong and Stylish: Siding to Complement Your Home’s Details

Classic and strong, red brick is the most traditional brick variety.

After the Great Chicago Fire in 1871, red brick use peaked in Chicago and the surrounding area, and after all these years, the red brick details stuck around. According to the market research, 60 percent of Chicago homeowners have red brick details on their homes.

With the scientific advances over the past hundred years, James Hardie Building Products has engineered a fiber cement siding that combines beautiful design with high performance. James Hardie® siding and trim withstand damage from moisture and rot, resist damage from termites, and generally require less upkeep than wood siding.

This siding performs under extreme hot or cold conditions— it can slow down the progress of flames, as well as help withstand a Chicago blizzard. And it looks great, too, especially when paired with red brick details. Here are some home examples featuring siding colors that complement red brick:
