Repairing Minor Damage on Your Fiber Cement Siding
One of the most popular siding materials available today is fiber cement – and its popularity is not unearned. Fiber cement siding is visually appealing, durable and low-maintenance, making it a fine investment for every homeowner. But like most components that see constant weather exposure, your siding will sustain some minor wear and tear over time, and you will need to repair it.
Fix Any Cracks on the Siding Material
Cracks may appear on your fiber cement siding due to weather damage or to your home settling. Whatever the reason, it pays to deal with them immediately because they make it easier for air and moisture to infiltrate your home. Clean the area around the cracks, and use a thick patching material to fill them. Smooth the patch over, and wait for it to dry.
Paint Over the Patched Area
You’ll want the patched section on your fiber cement siding to be as unobtrusive as possible. That’s why you should paint them with the same color as the rest of the siding. The paint coat will serve as an additional layer of protection against moisture infiltration. But what if the results of your DIY repair don’t look as good as you expected? If you want for higher quality work, you might want to work with a trusted siding painting and repair company like Complete Custom Painting.
