Hardie Board Textured siding instead of Stucco


Has anyone ever seen/done this? I was thinking of using the hardie-board textured siding, 4x8 sheet for $25, and filling in the seams with grout/cement and possibly painting or maybe getting the color impregnated board if I can find it, instead of using stucco.

Should give that "solid" look on the approx. 500 SF of the front of my upcoming house where the design calls for stucco. This would be directly up against foam board sheathing, and just bolt right on. Any reason not to do this, or tips on how to do it right? Don't think I can afford the stucco on my budget, plus it supposedly cracks pretty bad around here.

Sorry, that plan is doomed to failure. Why don't you go to the Hardie Website for the recommended use of the product you want to use. The success of the project is dependent on proper use, not your budget.

Been to the site, couldn't figure out. In fact it didn't mention their textured board anywhere. How about that's why I ask the question here before I do it?

Couldn't figure out if it was supposed to be siding, or for only interior apps. It's made of the same stuff that hardi-paneling is made of (at least I thought). They have it at HD but can't find any info on it.

Hmm, yep, they do make it. Don't know if it's the same thing they had at HD, but CertainTeed has 4x8, 4x9, or 4x10 sheets of it. Page 15. Is this "Doomed to Failure"? Lol.

Don't do what you are thinking. Properly installed stucco won't crack too much.

Thanks for the info. I might just have to figure out how to install stucco.
