Hello all. I have been given about 100 lenghts of 6 1/4" hardiplank in exactly the right color for my garage that will match our heritage house. the problem is that I want to match the house leaving a 3" reveal.
1) Can I use the 6 1/4" without ripping it down?
2) If so, how do I determine the width and thickness of the starter strip I should use?
3) How thick will the overall finished product be, because I'll have to allow for that with the jam extensions around the garage doors, mandoors, and window trim that the hardie will butt into.
4) Anything else that I should have asked but am too naive to think of?
Thanks for your time.
