One of James Hardie’s most popular siding colors in the East Coast is

Pearl Gray

, a light, misty morning gray. It may be the most common pick because it simply adds a clean, subtle modernity to a home’s exterior.  

James Hardie has a vast

collection of siding hues

in the gray family, such as

Iron Gray


Night Gray

, and medium-toned grays, such as

Aged Pewter

. Any gray that you choose from the ColorPlus


palette will stay

vibrant longer with less maintenance than field-applied paint.

James Hardie’s

ColorPlus Technology

is specifically engineered to help resist damaging UV rays.

The lighter Pearl Gray feels cooler than the other grays in the James Hardie collection, and seems to come to life when paired with a darker gray, or a crisp, clean white.
