Likewise, people ask, does Hardie board need to be painted?
Painting: Hardie board siding is known to retain paint longer than wood. Because it is moisture-resistant, it never swells or rots so the paint never peels, chips or cracks. It also comes in a variety of pre-painted colors from which to choose, allowing you to select the proper shade without lifting a finger.
Secondly, what kind of paint do you use on Hardie board? Using The Proper Materials and Paint- For fiber cement or HardiPlank siding, a very good latex primer should be used to prepare the surface for paint. After your surfaces are primed it is strongly encouraged to use acrylic exterior paint for your home.
Keeping this in consideration, how often do you have to repaint Hardie board?
On average, a high quality, 100-percent acrylic exterior house paint should last anywhere from five to 15 years on fiber cement that's properly primed at the factory, as long as the paint was applied correctly and there hasn't been any unusual damage to the home.
