I installed Hardiboard siding on our new house and called Hardi corp. to ask if their primed siding was sufficiently primed before we painted. They assured me it was as long as it was installed within 6 months. l also used a recommended paint of Hardie corp. from Lowes called Valspar Premium acrylic latex.

This paint covers real well but I'm having a "blending" problem overall and it looks terrible!!

Hardi is blaming the paint and Valspar is blaming the siding. I don't know what to do next. Has anyone seen this before? Enclosed pic is when the paint was dry.
