Do you think it???s time to change siding colors? Whether you simply want a new color or your siding needs a refresh with a fresh coat of paint, you shouldn???t have a problem doing some??exterior painting??on James Hardie?? siding. However, there are some things you need to prepare for and consider.
Preparing Tour Exterior
One of the great benefits of James Hardie siding is that it???s easy to repaint, whether you’ve got a ColorPlus?? finish or custom paint job on your existing cladding. There???s no need to apply a primer, so all that???s needed is for you to lightly sand your siding, then rinse it with a garden hose to clean off any dust or dirt.
Before you start painting, you may also need to check your caulking. Most siding is installed with matching caulking around windows and corners that comes with a 15-year warranty. Depending on how old your James Hardie siding is, it may be a good time to save money and replace your caulking as well. This also ensures that no moisture can get through the joints and cause deterioration.
What to Remember When Repainting James Hardie Siding
Keep in mind that if you???re repainting James Hardie ColorPlus siding after only a few years, this will void your existing 15-year finish warranty. However, it won???t affect your full James Hardie material warranty, so long as you’ve selected a paint that meets the product???s recommendations. If you???re not sure how you???ll go about your repainting job or don???t have the time, it???s best to hire professionals for??residential painting??services.
