James hardi siding not primed? did not know it came un primed? that is new to me. last time they made un primed was around 1998.

come again?

You say your a painter and don't understand that you can use glidden and SW super paint have the same mil thickness when wet and when dry glidden will be 1 to 1-1/2 mil less thick. Why becuase of cheaper binders resins and more solvents aka water. I always spend more up front on paint so I save money down the road in time and money going back to do it over in seven to ten years.

what has that got to do with anything?
glidden and ss were not mentioned, valspar was.
valspare certainly is not QUALITY paint.
