Just starting building our new home and a local builder mentioned that he had heard about problems with Hardiplank siding. Was not sure what the problem was but may be expansion/contraction and paint retention? Have any of you heard of any problems with the product (not the paint job)?

Here's the URL for Hardie. http://mfdhousing.com/james_hardie/
Notice that it doesn't mention paint. Someone in another post recently said that they don't guarantee paint sticking. You might want to contact them to see what they say.

Thanks for the response. Saw one site where they addressed the paint problem and recommended priming with Duron Bond & Seal

On painting Hardie Plank even though they say it is primed it should be primed with an acrylic primer such as Duron Bond-N-seal and finished with Duron Weathershield Acrylic House Paint in satin or semi-gloss. This will seal the surface better and give you great adhesion and better long term durability. Also caulk after you have primed the siding and trim for a longer lasting caulk job as this keeps the resins from the caulk soaking into the raw trim and siding.
Hope this helps out.

I used HardiPlank Lap Siding when I built our new home in 1998 .
This is the BEST paint retention siding I have ever used .
I am 68 years old and a homeowner since 1969 .
We keep up on our maintenance and it was about 7 years ago we repainted the siding .
My neighbors who also built in 1998 used LP siding .
It need repainting about 50 % sooner
