Painting HardiPlank - Flat? Satin? Eggshell?
 
Please help.... I am getting conflicting information here and I'm not sure which way to go...

We have brand new Hardi Plank siding on our house and the next step is to have it painted. We are using Sherwin Williams Duration "life-time" paint, color - Dorian Gray (any opinion on our color choice are welcome as well, because we have no idea what it will look like on the house vs. on the color wheel, especially since part of our house has brick siding -will it look good next to the reddish brick?).

One painter told me I should use Flat because it hides imperfections and seams etc... better, and another told me Satin because it is more durable and will wear better.

I guess I am just looking for some more opinions. We just want our paint job to have the best possible apearance for the longest time we can. Any and all opinions would be appreciated!!

Thanks !!

Satin. It will let go of any dirt in the future when you hose it down and it will look good against your semi-gloss trim. With brand new siding there is no worry about hiding imperfections.
