Question

Painting over composite board


HI, I am new to the forum. Our house is about 5 years old and is made of composite (hardi***) board. They originally only put one coat of paint on and it is very spotty in places. I have hired a guy to pressure paint, paint one coat, caulk and do the trim with SW durablend. My impression was that the durablend was a paint and primer in one, so I am pretty sure one coat will be sufficient. Plus it has a lifetime warranty. Anyone disagree or have a better paint suggestion? He is going to spray and then brush over. Thanks for any help!

SW dura-----? is not a one-coat paint. it's a consumer grade, low quality IMO, paint that has stain-blocking qualities similar to Sensations by ACE. in a side by side test, however, Sensations actually had better stainblocking properties (not relevant).

i'm not saying that this SW paint won't do what you need it to do. recoating previously painted boards should not be very difficult. if anything, i'd say you're overpaying for the quality of paint being used.

My mistake I meant SW duration. Getting my motor oil and paint mixed up!

personally I'd prefer an exterior paint like Ben Moore's Moorglo Soft Gloss for trim and Moorgard Low Lustre for walls/siding. These are lifetime paints (and they mean it). if you are paying for SW DURATIONS, you might as well go the extra $10 or so and get a paint that covers much better and won't fade out.

as you can tell, i am a big opponent of Sherwin William's Durations paint. you might as well buy your paint @ lowes...

No I don't. But I am a firm believer in good paint and I've found that de durations is not as good as advertised.

You will be fine with using duration, if your going with the same color that's already on the hardiboard you may be able to use only one coat, any quality latex paint with acrylic binders will coat hardiboard with good results, and because of the acrylic binders the paint will not fade as quickly as a paint with out acrylic binders, the is one of the benefits of acrylic binders
