Ceiling beadboard


I am at a loss on how to install the bead board planking on my front porch. As I went to put the first plank up I found that the original ceiling is made up of 1/4 inch fiber cement board. The nails are just bending! ( I am using a gun.) Any advice would be nice.

This current ceiling material will need to come down and the framing set up for the new material.
This 1/4" material could be asbestos impregnated cement board, depending on it's age.
How old is it? If it was installed in the mid 1970's or before, it's asbestos cement board.
Some areas have strict removal procedures, some don't.

Thanks Ron. Yes house was constructed in the 70's. This ceiling opens into the attic. Being a couple blocks from the ocean would you make any more recommendations?

Prime(Oil) all sides of the planking before you put it up.

Thanks again Ron. Will seal accordingly if the removal process doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

Nothing will hold up better than what you already have up there, especially in your location. Why are you covering/replacing it?

The 70's were a transitional period for asbestos being removed from building products. The material might not be asbestos. That would be the first determination I'd make. Then find out what the requirements are for removal by a homeowner in your locale. You might be able to remove it yourself.

As for why it's being done: the misses wants it that way. I try to give her everything she wants within reason.
Had someone look at the board last night and it can be removed without a hassle. So full steam ahead. Thanks again for all the input.
