siding repair
I have replaced 7 sheets of rotten siding. I have used hardi pannels and hardi trims. I have a dillemma whether I should go up and cover the sticking out flashing with 1X6 and ugly seams with 1X4 following the pattern at the bottom ? Is there some air circulation issue (can flashing in the siding be covered ?).



Also I was planning to cover those ugly seam with 1X4 on the rest of the siding. The siding is not rotten at the bottom so I can leave it as is, just add 1X4 along the flashing and seams .. Is it a good idea ?

You're asking for trouble by not flashing the 1x4's and horizontal seams as one unit. I don't see any z-bar flashing at the top of the sheet of hardie board.

Never cover flashing with 1x4's or anything else. Incorporate them into the flashed system if you want them.
