Fiber Cement Install Question
Brought purchased my house was remodeled and T1-11 was used as the new siding. They installed T1-11 over the existing plywood sheathing so I have double thickness plywood. Due to the windows being installed then over the T1-11 it is not easy to just tear it off, so my plan is to just re-side over the T1-11. The problem is on the gable end they did not install T1-11, so I just have the original plywood us there causing a difference of about a half inch.. So I have two options to flush out the siding, I can slap up another layer of sheathing to make the gable end the same thickness, or I can just add 1/2" furring strips. Furring strips would be much easier and somewhat cheaper in my opinion, but I am not sure what type of end product I will be getting with this. I guess it just seems very strange to have nothing solid behind the siding.
There’s no problem going over what you have assuming it’s all in sound shape.
I’d sheet the gable, much easier to maintain a drainage plain with the house wrap and I prefer Hardie to be installed over a solid surface.
It is ok to install Hardie over furring strips, I just prefer not to.
