Some quick James Hardie installation requirements.

  • Any exposed nail also known as “Face Nail” needs to be a finish nail and not a headed nail.
  • James Hardie wants a drainage gap in between the Z Metal Flashing and Siding. This application goes above James Hardie Plank Window Trim, James Hardie Plank Door Tim, James Hardie Plank Bellyband Trim, James Hardie Plank Freeze Board Trim, James Hardie Light Block, James Hardie Faucet Block Trim, James Hardie Plank Electrical Block, low clearance on concrete and decking.
  • James Hardie Plank does NOT want the field joints to be caulked. Instead use a 8″x5″ Metal or Plastic plate.
  • James Hardie Plank recommends OSI Quad Max Caulking.
  • Install Metal Kick out flashing from wall to gutter. This channels water into the gutter and not behind where the gutter dies into the wall.
  • Install James Hardie Plank Siding with Ring Shank Coil Nails. Secure to studs to avoid board sagging and cracking.
  • Prime Cut Hardie boards before painting.

This requirements are not only for Residential applications but also for commercial and Multi-Family structures.
