Hi All,

I'm new to the forum. I'm a GC in Portland Oregon - mostly work on repairs, rehabs and remodels.


I've got a project replacing some EIFS with Hardi products and one element I need to copy is the front archway. The 1/4" hardipanel (cedar mill if it makes a difference) I need to bend is about 18" by 48". Can't seem to find any advice on the net and so I thought I'd see if someone here has any tricks of the trade.

Thanks,

Steve

Actually hardi will bend. I just did two arches and cut it to size and then pushed up slowly in the middle and it bent right around the arch and did not break. I then screwed it up and will be tiling it soon...

It worked!

Let's see if I can figure out how to get a pic on here.

Not much curve to the arch but the I bent the hardi in by starting in the middle and working towards the ends. No creasing or buckling.
