    Does anyone have advice on how to prep our x-90 siding for painting? I'm having the local student painters out here in 3 weeks, they told me to just pressure wash it ahead of time, but I have had so much trouble finding information online regarding this subject. Any advice anyone?? Thanks so much.

    X-90 is a Masonite corporation product. Hardboard siding is what it is, but the x-90 is the trademark stamp put on the back of the sheets of a Masonite panel.
    These have issues with moisture, before you paint contact Masonite to see if your year product has a claim against it. Chances are the money is gone, but then you will know if it should be painted or replaced.
    Spend your money wisely.:)
