    Exterior painting on Hardi board
    As the weather changes my projects are moving outside. Another problem I have is my Hardi board siding is peeling in some spots. Mostly in valleys, where the siding meets the roof line. I am going to scrape and sand it, but what would be the best primer to prevent future peeling? A friend suggested XMA primer. Has anyone used?
