Paint Fiber Cement | Painting & Finishes House


: My Victorian-era house is paintinged with 3 tones of.
purple. I am preparing to re-side your home with fiber concrete,.
however I cannot discover any kind of maker that provides those exact same.
different colors. Exactly what are my choices?– Denise Danielle DeFelice,.
Wilton, N.H.

A: I took your concern to Rich O’Neil, a paint.
specialist at Masterwork Paint & & Repair,.
that has actually shown up on Ask TOH TELEVISION episodes. Below’s exactly what.
he needed to state.

“Have you taken a look at the different colors provided by James.
Hardie? Their factory-applied, baked-on overcoats come.
with a 15-year guarantee versus fading, cracking, peeling off, or.

“If their different colors option does not satisfy your requirements, talk with.
a person at a lumberyard that stocks it. He might have the ability to.
factor you to a regional business that could use a customized baked-on.
surface; fiber concrete’s weight as well as brittleness make.
long-distance delivery unwise. Nevertheless, also if you do.
find a prefinisher, it might not be affordable to order.
3 various tones. One prefinisher informed me that the.
minimal expense for every custom-made different colors would certainly have to do with $980, with.
a minimal run of 500 square feet.

“It may be much better to simply painting the fiber concrete after it’s.
set up. Order unpainted fiber concrete, which is keyed at.
the manufacturing facility, after that cover it with a top-notch, One Hundred Percent.
acrylic outside paint utilizing any kind of different colors you desire. I suggest.
2 layers, after the boards are carefully cleansed with a.
stress washing machine as well as enabled to completely dry for a couple of days. Do not wait.
as well long prior to paint; the subjected guide breaks down.
after around 6 months.

“Likewise, make certain that every board end– at the edges as well as in.
each program– is covered with an elastomeric or acrylic-latex.
caulk. Without that security, those ends are reliant allow.
wetness in as well as weaken.

“Site-applied paint on fiber concrete must hold up extremely.
well– a lot longer compared to paintinged timber– however it definitely will not.
have the durability of a manufacturing facility surface.”.
