Hardie Plank Siding - Horizontal/Vertical Flashing


Wow, thanks so much, really good to know your thoughts.

So, my architect is calling for an 8" exposure so that the siding lines up with the brick. How bad is that going to be? Worse than 7" for sure!

If it was siding matching to siding then yes but siding to brick, thats up to you. I have ran siding to brick many times and never even thought about wanting the lines to match.

I'll throw you some more later, to nice out side to hang in here anymore.

Hardie Plank Siding - Horizontal/Vertical Flashing


Hmm, very interesting. It made sense that we'd want the siding and the brick to match up BUT given that we need to use the trim, it won't really matter, will it? A tighter fit is certainly better. Thanks for the heads up!

Also, going back to my original question, as I read through the Hardie Best Practices guide a bit further they don't explicitly say that trim needs to be installed where siding butts into masonry, instead it says, "flashing should be installed to isolate the trim or siding from mortar or masonry." Can I install the siding with the L flashing or is it necessary to also include the trim?

Be sure to enjoy the weather, I am stuck in my office, so this is at least a diversion. I appreciate your help and guidance tremendously!
