Will this work on Cedar beveled siding?

Answers

I would say no. They are designed to be used on long pieces. I imagine you are working with pieces that are only six to eight inches wide. To align you work better, I would temporary piece on one by stock & use that to line up the individual pieces.

This made siding a garage we built super easy. I’m a 5’2” female and could work on it by myself with even full length 12’ planks of hardy board while my husband was at work.

bought these cause you cannot hire any good help now a-days! these are GREAT-wish I had thought of them! easily adjustable to the lap you want. two clips hold a 12' Hardi plank with ease. did a 22x20 & 9x9 addition plus a 24x24 garage and they hardly show any wear.

you would be foolish to side without using these gauges. I'm not sure what professionals use, but for a homeowner working on a shed or the house on the weekends this is a must have product. You can easily hang siding with one person. very easy to use - kept siding level and spaced correctly.

I didn't really want to spend the money on this tool. However, once I started using them, I realized I could not have hung the Hardie planks without them. They are easy to use & helped me to install perfectly level siding. I'd give it 10 stars if I could.

Makes installation of lap siding much easier, more uniform and increases production.

If you are doing an installation of James Hardie HardiePlank Lap Siding, you need this tool. No questions asked. Just keep in mind the following: 1 - Even though the pic shows only one device, it is actually a pair 2 - Make sure you buy the correct tool for the type of lap siding you are going to do; Call the Gecko company if you are not sure 3 - Don't assume this tool will not require you to properly ensure each piece of lap siding is perfectly level (though it is pretty spot on) If you work for Home Depot, please: a - Update the image on the website b - Place these things in the store near the siding and you might actually sell more lap siding c - Place the James Hardie trim near the lap siding. This is a no brainer.

Best residing tool since the air nailer!
These siding gauges are a must for anyone planning on residing a home. If your a DIYer and need to work alone, they are essential to a great finished job. If you have a helper, they will definitely speed up the job by letting someone do other tasks other than holding each piece of siding level while another person nails it. These siding gauges are awesome. I resided an entire 2800sft Tri Level by myself. All the siding boards came out inline and level all the way up and around the windows and doors. I even had a neighbor come by and offer me a siding job!
