Primed Hardie siding ok for winter?


Hello all,
I have fallen behind with building my gargage due to Ohio having the second highest snowfall for the month of December. Currently my windows are installed, the walls have Tyvec on them and I'm ready to work the siding. Problem is I have no way to heat the garage long enough to ensure I get a good bond of paint on the hardie boards. Outside temps are <32 degrees.

The boards are primed... so is it better to install the boards now and have them go through the winter before I paint them in the spring or leave the walls as they are and just intall the siding in spring?

I don't like either option but it's time to make a decision.

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Dave

If using the hidden fasteners, paint them in the garage with some temp. space heating, dry and install, if you get cabin fever. Later, prime, paint the field cuts for full warranty.

if you paint it now in your garage,how can you stack it for storage without it sticking together or damaging the finish

you can absolutely install the primed panel now,but depending on how long you wait to top coat you may have to re prime it

Good point, you have to have the room. I painted mine (12'), stood them up separately, inside against the roof slope, no runs. I spaced them with strapping on one side for rigidity against the overlap that didn't show the marks later. The other side used a 1x4 tacked to the wall, with nails spaced 1" apart to keep that side from face touching. A roller works fast followed by a dry paintbrush on the slab covered with tarp.

Primed Hardie siding ok for winter?


Thanks everyone,
Not sure if this would make a difference but this is a large garage... 1900sf so it's a lot of hardie board but I'll also have a lot of space too. The issue is at this point it's so big with no drywall anywhere, any heat just goes up so painting the boards in a heated room will not work.

So lets take paint off the table, it would really suck if it started to peal a year down the line...

My guess would be I can start painting in April so 3 months. So the question would be which is the greatest risk, something going wrong with the siding or something going wrong with the building itself not having the siding on?

I want to have the siding done now but I'm not sure if it's the best decision.

Suggestions? And thanks for the responses so far...
Dave

If OSB, add another layer of Tyvek or the siding. Problem is stretching the Ty then stapling causes it to shrink with the weather and the fastener holes elongate because of the material's structure, opening holes for water intrusion. Tom has done a lot more Hardie than I, wait for his response.....

i agree Gary thats why its best to use a capped fastener

another layer of tyvek would be cheap insurance,using tyvek stucco wrap or another wrap with drainage grooves would be even more better under hardie

Thanks all,
we did use capped fasteners and it is OSB underneath.

Am I ok with the current capped fasteners or is it still better to put another layer of tyvek on?

I'm wondering if a second layer will negate the breath-ability of the that barrier in the long run...

I like the idea of adding the second layer, just wondering if we should install it to be removed prior to the siding going up?
Thanks
Dave

you don't need to remove it,as a matter of fact 2 layers of wrb may just be the way to go when installing a reservoir cladding if a rain screen detail is not being used

Dave,

Have you talked to a Hardie rep yet and ask him/her what to do? Where did you buy the siding?
