Our almost 30 year-old garage needs to be painted. It has older siding on
it but I'm not sure what it's called. It's not made of wood, vinyl or
aluminium. Is it called clap board? or is clap board made of wood only?
The material looks like a fibre-cement composition... what's this stuff
What type of paint do I use?
A long time. Until I did a search I did not know if it was still
available. The stuff on the page I at that web site seems to be a lot of
new stuff I did not even know about. I am not sure, but I believe
Hardiplank is a trade name and there may be other brands of the same basic
Fiber Cement HAS NOT been around long enough. The siding in the
photos is Masonite or a copy of it, and is made of wood fibers (kinda
like cardboard). Asbestos siding (Transite) looks totally different.
Any good latex paint should work fine, but I would also suggest that
you "ask Sherwin Williams", since I am very pleased with the products
Best of luck!
