hardiplank
 
are there any known problems with the 1980's Initial Homes exterior hardiplank ?

Not that I’m aware of. Hardi didn’t start manufacturing in the US until 1989.

What kind of problems are you referring to?

I'm in New Zealand where it was used extensively in 60's 70's 80's. I'm wondering about any asbestos content it might have

Hardiplank
 
I am buying a house with hardiplank siding but the siding has so many different gaps between it with caulking. How much space should be between the hardiplank end to avoid caulking

Well crisnoel apparently Hardi did contain asbestos until 1987.

Google “asbestos hardiplank New Zealand” , you’ll have plenty to read.

Just curious crisnoel, what type of siding is being used extensively down there today?
