CertaPro Painters® of Plymouth, MI Offers Hardie Plank & Fiber Cement Siding Painting
CertaPro Painters® of Plymouth, MI offers a variety of siding painting services, including composite siding, such as Hardie Board and Fiber Cement. Hardie Plank siding is a fiber cement alternative, but both we offer painting for both sidings, since they are very similar in a way that they are composite material. This composite material is intended to last through weather conditions and extreme temperatures and is known for it’s long-lasting durability. The siding also mimics the appearance of wood and often looks great a finished look for newer houses. If you’re considering painting hardie plank or fiber cement siding, it’s better to paint soon after installation and it’s a good idea to hire a professional painter to help accomplish that goal. The reason why it’s better to paint this type of siding before installation is because, if left untreated, siding starts to deteriorate. Applying a primer and a fresh coat of paint helps strengthen the siding, while protecting it from penetrable elements like water and debris. However, if your siding is not brand new, a thorough power wash before painting is the next best step.
Our painting offers power wash, prep, and paint services to prepare your hardie board siding for a new look. If you’re interest in hiring a professional contractor to paint your Hardie Plank or fiber cement siding, contact us today and schedule for a free estimate.
What is Composite Siding?
Composite siding is a durable and versatile building material used for exterior cladding. It is composed of a combination of wood fibers, resins, and other synthetic materials, engineered to mimic the look and texture of natural wood while offering enhanced durability and resistance to various weather conditions. Composite siding is designed to withstand moisture, rot, insects, and fading, making it a low-maintenance and long-lasting option for homeowners. It comes in a variety of colors and styles, allowing for customization to match different architectural designs and personal preferences. With its blend of aesthetics and practicality, composite siding has become a popular choice for enhancing the appearance and protection of residential and commercial buildings alike.
What is Fiber Cement?
Fiber cement is a composite material, made of cement, sand, water and cellulose fibers. Fiber cement siding is a durable, long-lasting, and low-maintenance material that’s been around for over 100 years. It’s a semi-rigid material that provides substantial protection, while still maintaining its flexible properties. Increasing in popularity, fiber cement costs less brick, synesthetic stucco, and some wood siding. Although more expensive than vinyl, fiber cement outweighs the outcomes of alternative materials.
What is Hardie Board?
Hardie Board or Hardie Plank is kind of fiber cement board siding invented by James Hardie. His company made industrial material and pioneered the development of a fiber-cement technology in the mid-1980s. His company wants to create an exterior product that could endure extreme climates while retaining the beauty of wood siding.
