Comment:
My Handyman and his son replaced old slightly rotted cedar siding with the Hardie siding on my 28 year old home. I had gotten really tired of the near constant caulking, painting, bleaching, etc. to get rid of mold, etc on the cedar that is required here in the Hotlanta suburbs so I asked him for an alternative. My home just would not look good in vinyl, but the hardie-plank was a dream to install (according to him) and after 4 years it so far still looks like it did after he finished painting it. It arrived in a sickly yellow primed color that my neighbors feared was my color choice I later learned (lol!). It did require a lot of paint to cover that primed cement but the results are difficult to fault. My house looks like a dream.

Comment:
Our son in law installed Hardie Plank 8 shiplap siding on our home in 2003. We painted it shortly after it was installed. We have not had to paint it again. We live in South Texas near the coast, and mold is a problem in this area. About every three years, we have to mix up a very weak bleach and water solution and spray the west side of the house where mold grows here and there. Then, we just hose it off real well and it looks good as new. Also, our house faces South, and the harsh summer sun has had no effect. We are very pleased with Hardie siding. So much so, that we will be using it on our new home that will be built this year. Our builder also likes this product. We would absolutely recommend Hardie products to friends.
