About James Hardie


Our product range suits a wide palette of architectural styles, from Hamptons to Modern designs which in turn means you have greater flexibility in terms of mixing and matching a diverse range of styles without changing the underlying method of construction. Our products work well on their own but also look great in combination with many traditional building materials such as stone, wood and brick, so you can incorporate single or multiple products in a design.

These products are used extensively in new residential construction, manufactured housing, repair and remodelling, as well as a variety of commercial and industrial applications. 

James Hardie® also provides technical information to support building designers and other built environment professionals.

Hamptons Look with James Hardie

The Hamptons look makes every day feel like a holiday. Prompted relaxation and the open plan coupleed with outdoor areas encourage families to connect. Using stylish, deep-shadow James Hardie weatherboards and the durability of fibre cement and trims delivers an unlimited colour choice.

The hallmarks of the Australian Hamptons Look lie in the gabled roof, the entertainment decking of the verandahs and the beautifully contrasting trims. The look is inspired by the architecture and decorating of holiday homes and buildings in luxury seaside communities and so the deep-shadow James Hardie Linea™ weatherboard cladding becomes a key decorative element.
