This is really nice siding. It's pretty easy to put up and is very durable. The pics are 2 or 3 years since it's been up and it still looks great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jakrabit best ever used
I have built 3 sheds using this siding. The oldest is 25 years old now, and has only had to be painted once due to paint fading in the sun. Easy to use, easy to hang, and easy to maintain. I am buying more this weekend to do a remodel (replacement) of rotted wood siding on a 40 year old building. Only drawback is the dust made when using a saw to cut, but wearing a dust mask definately helps in that area

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Canyonbc EXCELLENT!!!
This lap siding not only looks good but I think is the best product on the market. Its not the cheapest stuff on the market but it goes up so fast and easy and then comes pre primed on top of it.
With some simple and fairly in expensive tools out there that can keep the sides perfectly level as you proceed up the wall it is really fast.
Keep factory cuts next to factory cuts.
Wonderful product all in all highly recommend it
Bugs dont want it, fire resistent.
Only thing I can knock on it, and it maybe to hard to handle but on long homes, 12' sections can be a pain. Would not mind some 16' or even 20'.

This is the second time I have used this siding. Once to side my entire last house and now for my garage addition on a new house. This stuff is good quality. I really wanted to try LP Smartside, but just couldn't do it. The Hardi is a little more tedious to install, but the piece of mind of having it on once the install is complete makes the extra work well worth it.
I have shears and a cement board saw blade and pretty much never went back to using the shears after using the saw blade. It is not good for your lungs to breath in the silica particulate, but I don't think it is a big deal if you are working outside and only do a couple installs in your lifetime. If you were doing it everyday, you would need the speed of the saw....I found it helps to set my leaf blower on idle on the work piece blowing the dust away as I cut. I try to do gang cuts when possible, but it seems that that many single cuts are invariably required for one reason or another.
The Gecko siding gauge is a MUST HAVE if you are doing it solo and I would use them even if I did have someone to help me. I use the Rigid coil roofing nailer. It does a pretty good job of not over driving the nails.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by procrastinator Great product
I started putting my diy siding project about 6 years ago and have finally reached the final side this year. The point is not that I have procrastinated. The point is that the siding that I put on 6 years ago still looks brand new and the paint looks like it was just painted yesterday still.
