cement siding over T-111???
Greetings and thanks in advance for any thoughts,
I live on coastally in central Florida. I have a one story 2x4 frame home with plywood siding. The bottom of the siding is rotting. My plan is to remove atleast 1 foot of siding around the complete house and remove more where necessary and replace with 5/8 plywood. Then I will reside with vinyl or cement siding. My house is short so I think I'm leaning toward a board and batten look. I have a few questions. First, should I use pt plywood if I plan to install j-moulding to flash the bottom wood siding? Second, what vaper barrier and or insulation combo would you suggest? And , what is your preferance for siding materials? I think I'm leaning toward 4x8 sheets of cement fiber with wooden painted battens on 12 in centers. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
