There is a lot of discussion of fiber cement boards on alt.home.repair
Since the quality of wood available is much reduced over the past 40
years or so, synthetics are an increasingly good choice.
Fiber cement comes in many forms, resists deterioration, & holds paint
Fiber cement is heavy & Dust from sawing is dangerous.
Read manufacturer directions carefully.
i am applying hardiplank to 3 buildings roughly 260'x70' each. i just
started with it not too long ago and already im not set on it. heavy,
dangerous dust, lots of scrap from the slightest ding, flimsy, the seams
look like a**, and it doesnt seem to hold a nail worth a hoot
