Skirt boards


Our siding goes right down the ground level. When we install our fiber cement I know their needs to be 6" between the siding and grade.

If I install a 5/4 x 6" pvc trim board along the bottom, I would flash that using a drip cap.

However, I see that they have pre-made skirt boards that look like it's slanted at the top and has a "tongue" on it. So, does that mean I wouldn't use flashing or a starting strip for my fiber cement siding?

Sure that's not drip cap moulding your looking at?
Just stick with aluminum Z moulding.
Do not install the siding tight to the Z moulding leave about 1/4" gap.

Z moulding runs up behind the wall to protect it.

Well my original plan was to take a 5/4 x 6" piece and install, then z moulding, then starter strip and then fiber board. Since I've come across this, I wonder if this would be better, since it eliminates the need for a starter strip, flashing and saves time since I wouldn't need to make the z flashing.

I'd never seen that before, looks like it should work.
