Hardie Panel


My house. Roof chimney. 5x3x5 with full flanged metal cap.

Current, Pine RBB 12 o.c. With cedar 1x4 trim.

New plan. Hardie panel, wood grain texture. PVC trim.

No horizontal trim on bottom. Flashed 5-V metal roof.

Main question, prime paint bottom cut ? And seal/gasket around base perimeter where siding laps roof flashing ?

I need to get this done A.S.A.P. Water damage/rot. (not leaking)

Already had materials delivered but can swap out if needed for better product. Planning to get help this weekend.

Use LP Smart panel.

Prime cuts.

1" space to roof.

Re: Hardie Panel


Yes a gap at the bottom to keep siding from taking extra roof water and no sealant that obstructs the water flow over the roof flashing.

Re: Hardie Panel


My standard method would be lay a scrap 1x on the roof surface, then put a piece of Azek/PVC trim around the bottom of the chimney, z flash over that and hardie panel on top, seal the joint between the panel and trim, and leave the roof alone. I hate the way the 2 inch gap looks, especially with unpainted flashing, so the PVC trim is fine against the roof as it doesn't absorb water. The gap is there to allow debris to wash out, and/or allow for a future layover roof.

Re: Hardie Panel


Thanks for the tips. Planned on at least 2'' above roof. Will see how high flashing is once demoed.

Hope to get done this weekend. Will take some pics.

Re: Hardie Panel


All done. Blew it out in a few hours thanks to my daughters boyfriend. Just needs to get painted. Too many things to do. Surgery next week.

Promise to post pics as soon as my wife shows me how. I miss my old phone app.
