Hardie board rust staples in remod wood frame house


I al looking at a 2 story house in central eastern Florida near the ocean. The house was rehabbed and they did a pretty good job. I have lived in CBS (concrete block) homes most of my life. The area got hit about 10 years ago but the homes in the community held up well. Most are CBS or frame and stucco.

I am looking at this home that has been rehabbed. Google street pictures actually has it stripped down to the wood. The rehabbers screwed up on a second story pation deck using 1/4 or 1/2 inch boards and the deck is already warping due. So I am concerned these guys may not have been that sharp.

They put Hardie board on the outside over the wood frame. The roof is a metal roof. They painted the Hardie board but I noticed a few of the staples through the paint and I am seeing a little rust.

My spouse likes the house but I am worried. If these staples start rusting out then I am concerned. I had a deck dock built at the house I am selling and they used stainless steel screw. Shoe I be worried about the Hardie board? Thanks.

Checked on Hardie board and it says no staples and corroision resistant fasteners. I am not sure if I need to contact the building inspector for the city to see if he has notes or the house inspector before buying.

hardie is blind nailed, meaning you do not see the nails they are located below the lap of the piece above. if you see nails then they are probably trim nails or staples tacked at the seams to help hold the seams together. unless they face nailed the hardie, I've seen that before mostly on repairs where hardie is fit back into masonite

HOLD ON!

Let's clear-up something. Was Hardiebacker shower board used or was Hardie lap siding used? They are two entirely different products with different uses made by the same company.
