Specifics For Painting Fiber Cement Siding
Whether your fiber cement siding has a factory finish or it was painted just before installation it doesn’t really matter. The original finish doesn’t need to be sanded it really just needs to be properly cleaned. This can be done with a scrub brush and a hose. Using a pressure washer on fiber cement siding can actually cause damage if you aren't careful. When fiber cement siding is installed on a home they often use color matched caulking around any windows, corners, and to fill in small gaps. Depending on the type of caulking used and how it old is you can replace the caulking (which is a good idea) when you repaint.
Choose The Correct Paint
Choosing the right paint for your fiber cement siding is a must as choosing the wrong type of paint will result in your paint possible peeling and cracking after a short time. You don’t want to use any oil based paints or stains to paint your fiber cement siding, it just won’t last. Most fiber cement siding manufacturers suggest a water-based acrylic paint.
Here Is A PDF From James Hardie® Siding outlining their finishing recommendations. James Hardie® Siding is probably the most common type of fiber cement siding we encounter on customers homes. It’s always best to check with the manufacturer of your siding to see the specific paints or finishes they might recommend for your product.
- Use a high quality water based 100% acrylic paint.
- Paint within 180 days of installation.

Does Painting Fiber Cement Siding Void Your Warranty?
It won’t void the warranty on your siding itself but painting over the factory finish (if your fiber cement siding has one) can void the manufacturers warranty on the finish. Again, it’s best to refer to your particular manufacturer of fiber cement siding for the most up-to-date information. If properly painted with the right type of paint and preparation your new finish on your fiber cement siding should easily last another 10+ years without issue.
