Answer: 
Electric snips, somewhat like tin snips but used for cement board. Any type of saw blade will make too much dust, and any other cutter generally will not leave a good edge. There are a number of companies that make the "snips", well worth the money, you will have a good product and save time and energy.

Answer: 
Simplest way is to score a couple of times with a carpet cutter or plexiglass cutter or any other sharp but sturdy tool, and then snap clean. This is what the manufacturer suggests. Suggestion for snapping: sandwich the board along the line with two planks of wood and c-clamps to a picnic table or another heavy table. Wood can be 1"x3"x16". Gives a clean straight or angle cut.

For interior cuts, such as squares for an outdoor electric outlet, I mark the area with pencil, score, then use a chisel to begin cutting a bit at a time around several times until it cuts through. Always prime areas exposed. Read Less

Diamond blade on a chop saw or skilsaw. If you had read the hardibacker installation notes on their website, they recommend a specialized blade.. but a diamond blade works fine and it cheaper.

Answer: 
Get a diamond-edged blade for your circular saw if you have a big job to do. It will definitely pay for itself. Put it on your "oldest" circular saw if possible. It does a great job and pretty fast.

Answer: 
What neither of these answers tell you is they've assumed I think 8" plank - 1 1/4" in overlap = 6 3/4" net exposure per plank, multiplied by 12' lengths = 6 3/4 sq ft per plank# Thus 2600 SF divide 6#75 = 385 planks and add some for waste, maybe 5%#
So it REALLY depends on plank size what you like to see or what fits in your neighborhood/region# For my detached garage in KC, I used 8 1/4 plank, thus 7" Read More

So it REALLY depends on plank size what you like to see or what fits in your neighborhood/region# For my detached garage in KC, I used 8 1/4 plank, thus 7" of exposure# This is 40% more exposure than the 6 1/4 plank, 5" exposure, and for only about $1 more per plank, much more cost effective#
In this same example, 2600 sf divide 7 sq ft exposure = 371 planks - that's 20 fewer at at about $9+ per plank, that's almost $180 difference - not a lot of $ but something to consider. Read Less

Answer: 
Hi Laurel, sorry for the delay in answering your question.
I contacted James Hardie company to get you an answer.
James Hardie company stated you will need a minimum of 390 pieces, to cover 2700 square feet.
There are 15 pieces to a square. You will need 26 squares.
This will not account for any waste, so you might consider purchasing 10 percent more material.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I have had this on my house for about 15 years with little issue. The key to this stuff is to make sure that the nailing is right on, no shortcuts here also use a good diamond blade on a worm-drive and it will do a wonderful job. I just put up another 12x12 attachment to the house will little issue. Also, this stuff must be carried in the upright position all the time, it dose snap real easy in half if not. October 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Durable, not as brittle as I expected, a bit time-consuming to apply. First time applying this siding. Used a framing gun with 8d nails to speed things along. Used a diamond blade on a wormdrive to make detail and angled cuts, and also had the 'recommended' blade on a chopsaw for clean butt ends. Make sure you check the Hardbacker site for detailed installation notes. Using a respirator added another step in the cutting process which took a bit of time. The recommended blade still shot out a good amount of dust. Also, this stuff cuts slower than wood and is heavier. For the options out there though, I would definitely recommend this siding. At 5/16ths thick, it's pretty solid stuff, and I don't feel like owner neglect would compromise the house in comparison to wood siding. STUCCO is probably still the best, but is generally twice as much as this stuff, and the price for the Hardibacker is comparable to wood siding per sq/ft. I was surprised at how long it took to throw up though, but it's worth it. September 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hardi Plank These boards are great! They were so easy to install and they took the paint realy well. They gave my house the traditional look of wood with the durability of concrete. I will definately use them again if my next house requires siding. December 11, 2010
