We had to use a ceramic tile cutter to cut through hardieplank siding. Is there something simpler?

The manufacturer recomends a circular saw (Skill Saw) with a blade specificaly made for Hardie Board. Diablo makes ones for a 7 1/4 saw, and it is sold at homeDepot. https://www.homedepot.com/p/DIABLO-7-1-4-in-x-4-Teeth-Polycrystalline-Diamond-PCD-Tipped-James-Hardie-Fiber-Cement-Saw-Blade-D0704DH/100627137 or better a miter saw with a blade for hardie board. Here is an example of a 12 inch. https://www.homedepot.com/p/DIABLO-12-in-x-8-Tooth-Polycrystalline-Diamond-PCD-Tipped-James-Hardie-Fiber-Cement-Cutting-Saw-Blade-D1208DH/203162564

How many boards will I need to buy for 1,700 sq ft

Asked by Newbie February 23, 2019

Answers

By my calculations, assuming 1.25 inch overlap (7 inches exposed) it works out to 7 sq ft coverage per plank. 1700 sq ft / 7 = 243 planks 10 % loss would add another 24 for a total of 267.

I would say no. I solid stain might work, but I don't recall any mention of staining in the literature.

Hardie recommends flashing under each vertical joint with no caulk.

Can you install vertically

Asked by Eric August 12, 2020
4
Answers

Ummm... I suppose you could... It is typically installed as a shiplap installation, with the boards running horizontally, and each board overlapping the one below by about 1 to 1-1/2 inches. That way when water strikes the surface, each board sheds the water OUT and DOWN. This gives you a weather tight shell on your building. If you run the boards vertically, the joints will catch and channel the water along the joint and into the building. Even with the best caulking job (and this would a long tedious caulking job), you will never get a water tight seal. Not good.

how much hardie plank will i need to cover 2600 SF outdoor wall space?

Asked by laurel February 25, 2014

Answers

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" 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.

How many boards is 744 sq ft.

Asked by Ts87 September 28, 2019

Answers

Sorry, the formula is square footage you need to cover divided by exposure of plank. So 744 divided by 7 equals 107 pieces

Can the corners be mitered?

Yes they can as long as you have a saw big enough to cut all the way through it or slide through it.

This product works great. Big Notice: Although it says white, it comes as shown in the cement fiber, greenish color, so be aware if you need it to come white. That is the only reason it has 4 stars for Home Depot. For people who don’t have a cement fiber saw or blade or have never worked with it, you can get by just fine by scoring your line to few times with an exacto knife and it will snap perfectly and cleanly on your cut line.

James Hardie siding is pain, suffering and misery.
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
Advertising sounds great: great fire rating, hail damage resistance, termites resistance. But let me tell you what is not advertised. Firstly, it is quite an expense to install it. In most places it's more expensive than stucco and x-times the price of PVC siding. Secondly, it's hard to install right. Your installer has to be very proficient. I have used one that was recommended by James Hardie themselves and installation was ruined (see pics after 2y). Thirdly, manufacturer warranty is next to none. It's next to impossible to claim anything. I was told it's quote "between myself and my installer". Lastly, if installed over foam, it moves and flaps, waking up family members and completely ruining my life. I wish I can turn back the time ...

Hardie Pland for Garden Shed
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
This product was of good quality and performed well. Be careful when loading on a truck or carrying as it breakers very easily if not moved it the correct way. I did not purchase the special hardie plank saw blade or plank cutter. I used a regular Diablo cross cut wood blade in my compound mitre saw. It dulled the blade, but worked fine. I just bought a new wood blade after which was much less costly than the special blade.

I had wanted the GAF siding, but due to COVID it wasn't available. The only option was the HardiePlank. It is a fair bit harder to apply. Long, heavy planks that require a special Diablo saw blade. They are a bit of a pain to transport, and they break, so support them during transport. Flatbed truck or just have them delivered. Make sure you have a table or cutoff saw handy. And have a helper. But, once you have that, you'll absolutely love the results. I sure do, and my neighbors have been very complementary. Looks great, really substantial, and paints very easy.
