HardiePlank siding repair


Some boards need to be replaced. Originals are blind nailed. For replacing boards only at the bottom (let's say the bottom 4 boards), first, how do you remove that 4th board without loosening the one above it?

Then, when replacing, how do you maintain blind nailing and still get that 4th board underneath the one already installed above it? Would you simply face nail that one?

HardiePlank siding repair


They were cut tight to the roof shingles along a gable. They are absorbing moisture and the paint is failing.

I'm sorry but I don't understand your answer - you didn't seem to address my questions.

HardiePlank siding repair


Only way I've been able to do it is to tap in a flat bar under the highest one you want to remove and cut the nail with a 12" long sawall blade. Even then it sometime breaks the piece.
Once that piece is slide out use a punch to pound the nails through the planks. Trying to pry the nails out will just shatter the planks.

And yes the last piece is will need to be face nailed.

He was suggesting starting at the top and removing all the pieces.
That siding was suppost to be no closer then 2" of the roof. What I do on a dormer is use 1 X 4 vinyl lumber first againt the shingles, aluminum Z molding then the siding.

Thanks Joe.

There is no way I would start at the top in this case!
