Things You Should Know When Painting James Hardie® Siding
James Hardie® fiber cement siding is incredibly durable and beautiful, which is why it is steadily growing in popularity among homeowners. These siding products come with an appealing baked-in color, but they can also be repainted.
About Your James Hardie® Warranty
The first thing you need to be aware of is that repainting your siding will void your 15-year James Hardie ColorPlus® warranty. However, this does not void the full James Hardie material warranty. You will need to choose a paint that meets James Hardie’s recommendations so it’s best to leave this project to experienced professionals like us. Even if your ColorPlus warranty is voided, you may still get warranty coverage from the paint manufacturer and the exterior painting company.
Painting James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding
You don’t need to use primer if you plan on getting your James Hardie fiber cement siding painted. You simply have to clean off any dust or dirt on your siding using a garden hose. You should also check the color matched caulking around your windows and corners. You might have to replace them. You should also lightly sand the James Hardie siding before rinsing it to help the new coat of paint last longer.
The paint needs to be applied as evenly as possible across each piece of siding. There’s no fool-proof way to repaint siding so you need to work with an exterior painting company that you can trust. This company should be experienced, and it should know how to handle James Hardie fiber cement siding. Two coats of high-quality 100% acrylic exterior paint can look beautiful for up to 20 years as long as the paint is applied correctly.
