face nailing hardie plank; caulk nail or not?


customer service at Hardie is closed until next year so I can't get the mfg's recommendation but do I need to caulk over the nails when face nailing into Hardieplank?

Thanks

I doubt that caulking over the nails is required for Hardie Plank. This is not LP siding, in fact a far cry from it. I am not a sider by trade although I have installed my share of Hardie Plank.
