painting hardiplank siding


I have a house with unpainted, primed hardiplank that has been up on the house for two years. Do I need to prep the siding in any special way since it wasn't painted within the 180 day time frame suggested by Hardiplank?

painting hardiplank siding


Wash it, prime it using a quality latex primer and then apply two coats of a quality latex with 100% acrylic binders, our choice of paint for hardiboard is SW SuperPaint
