hardey board fix

when we built our home, we used the Hardy Board 4x8 with the "stucco" finish. I really don't like the seams and wanted to start stucco'ing the house and use stone accents for windows, corners, etc. I have been told that I could simply tack the wire and start scratch coating, since the hardy board is cement. Do you all agree?

With 4x8 Hardi siding you run bats on the seams. Hardi is not T&G like 4x8 wood siding so the bats also help the keep the water out and cover the ugly seam.

I know this doesn’t answer your question but you might want to consider what your 4x8 Hardi job would look like if it was finished.

I wouldn't treat it any differnet than sheating. All it sounds like you're saving with this approach is the WRB layer(s), tar paper, Tyvek, etc.....

Make sure to use long enough roofing nails to penetrate the STUD at least 1". We always use 1/2" wide staples for this, but I don't see the staples drivign through Hardie. Don't forget to extend the hose bibs, electrical boxes, etc... as well.
