Comment:
Our son in law installed Hardie Plank 8 shiplap siding on our home in 2003. We painted it shortly after it was installed. We have not had to paint it again. We live in South Texas near the coast, and mold is a problem in this area. About every three years, we have to mix up a very weak bleach and water solution and spray the west side of the house where mold grows here and there. Then, we just hose it off real well and it looks good as new. Also, our house faces South, and the harsh summer sun has had no effect. We are very pleased with Hardie siding. So much so, that we will be using it on our new home that will be built this year. Our builder also likes this product. We would absolutely recommend Hardie products to friends.

Comment:
I did a complete remodel of my house, siding and windows, replacing 1930's wood siding. Living in NC there was a fair amount of water rot and old termite damage to it. I installed this instead of vinyl for three reasons 1) I can change the color down the road if I want, 2) in the south, even good quality vinyl fades over time and 3) I did not want to deal with rot and termites in the future! <br /><br />You learn quickly how to handle it, after snapping a few boards by not picking them up correctly. Also the 4 trim boards are very rigid and do not bend or curve well if you are trying to make them fit into an area not square. I have a few 'tears' and cracks in the trim where I forced it to follow the line of the house. Nothing caulking and paint can't fix though.
