Hardiboard Siding

Our new townehouse complex has hardiboard siding and we are planning to build a reserve fund to paint it in the future. Our contractor set an 8-yr life expectancy on the siding paint. Is this reasonable, or can we go longer? btw SherwinWilliams paint was used on the new siding.

Hardiboard Siding

The life of you paint is going to depend on the quality of the paint, number of coats, weather conditions, is the home in the shade or in full sunlight, color of the paint, etc. An eight year expected life sounds like the contractor is wanting job security or maybe skimped on something the first coat, maybe you live in a high dollar private golf course where everything is expected to be tip top shape 24/7.


You hired WHO?
