How To Remove Oxidation From Hardi Board Siding


Coty from Southeast SoftWash here, and today we're diving into a restoration project on some severely oxidized Hardy plank siding in Auburn, Alabama. As we inspect the siding, it's evident that the recent hailstorm wreaked havoc, leaving behind a trail of oxidation spots.

The oxidation is thick and widespread, making it easy to spot even from a distance. However, beneath the surface, the paint seems to be holding up fairly well. This observation sparks the decision to attempt a restoration using Ox-knox, a proven solution for tackling oxidation on various surfaces.

We opt for a 4-to-1 ratio of Ox-knox, a formula that promises effective restoration without damaging the underlying paint. With the trusty pump-up sprayer in hand, we proceed to pre-wet the wall, preparing it for the Ox-knox application.

Now, it's time to get down to business. We start by applying Ox-knox generously to a section of the siding, ensuring thorough coverage. The goal is to let the Ox-knox dwell for about five minutes, allowing it to penetrate and break down the stubborn oxidation.

As we wait for the Ox-knox to work its magic, Coty shares some valuable insights. He emphasizes the importance of managing customer expectations and understanding that Ox-knox is not a miracle worker. However, if the paint is still intact, Ox-knox can breathe new life into the siding, extending its longevity.

For painters accustomed to laborious prep work involving TSP and elbow grease, Oxnox offers a welcome alternative. By simplifying the restoration process, it saves time and effort, making life easier for professionals and homeowners alike.

Finally, it's time to rinse off the Ox-knox and reveal the results. With a few sprays of water from the ball valve, the transformation becomes evident. The once heavily oxidized siding now gleams with renewed vitality, a testament to the power of Ox-knox.

As Coty wraps up the project, there's a sense of satisfaction in knowing that another home has been revitalized. Whether it's restoring faded siding or preparing it for repainting, Ox-knox proves to be a versatile solution for contractors and homeowners seeking to breathe new life into their exteriors.

And with that, we conclude our journey of restoration and transformation, leaving behind a home that's ready to face the elements with renewed resilience and beauty.
