Fiber cement siding is becoming more popular and if you’re installing your own, here are some installation tips to help you out.
The first strip that should be attached is the starter strip.
Look for the beat up pieces and rip them into 1 1/4” starter strips that get attached to the wall 1” above the ground using a 15 gauge trim gun. The easiest way to place the starter strip in the right place is to snap a line 1” above the bottom of the wall.
After the starter strips are attached, snap another line 1/4” below the starter strip and position the bottom row so that it hangs 1/4” below the starter strips.
