Hardi plank - staining vs painting


Hi, this is my first post, so bear with me if I am putting it in the wrong spot

It seems this thread is dealing mostly with stain, as in stains that ordinarily would be used on wood. I think most of those stains are oil based, there may be some acrylic/latex based ones out now. However, I was thinking since Hardie Board is a cement/fiber product, can it be stained with the colored stains that are used on concrete. The kind that you color patios sidewalks or interior cement flooring? I think some call this an acid wash? I was thinking vs paint it would not peel, bubble or need scraped, and may last a lot longer than paint. I live in SW OK so very hot and mostly dry here, we do get freezing temps in the winter.
I also wonder if Hardie Board can have a heavier texture hand troweled over it, maybe with the powdered pigment mixed in, like they do real stucco?

Hardi plank - staining vs painting


WE are currently building a house and have looked at the Rustic series stain for cement board form Woodtone in Chilliwack, BC. It is very expensive to get it pre-done. Did you buy your stain in Canada for the cement board. We live in Salmon arm when I went on the website for Superdeck Woodperfect Fiber Cement Stain it said it wasn't available in our area. Also did you spray it on or use a brush. Plus which stain colour did you use? So many questions but your house looks great. I would like to achieve similar results for our place if possible.
Thanks!

We (My husband and I) applied it horizontally with several coats to allow the stain to pool into the wood grain which gives it more of an actual wood look. Then it was installed by the framers. It has held up beautifully for the last 7 years with no problems whatsoever.

From the street, our house looks like it has cedar siding!! Absolutely beautiful.

We had to add some unpainted boards because we underestimated the amount we needed initally. So we applied the stain vertically after it was installed, and it does not look near as good as the rest of the house. Luckily, this was a small section on the back side. No one really can notice the difference because the color is the same, but it just does not have that dimensional look that the other boards do.

As far as someone mentioning peeling? I have noticed that where my soaker hose has come in contact with one of the boards, it is now starting to peel there. I am assuming because it was constantly wet, that it lifted the stain. That has not happened anywhere else on our house. We live in Texas and don't live in an area with high moisture all of the time, so you may have different results in other parts of the country.

We even put it on our garage door (horizontally) before it was installed. Our garage door even looks like a wood door!

If anyone is still reading this board, I would be happy to share pictures.
Would love to talk to you about the stain that you used and any other info you may have on staining Hardi board. We are building a little storage building in 2 weeks and would like for it to look like a little cottage.
