Does it seem strange that the Hardie installation guide doesn't speak to how deep the nail should penetrate into the stud? It justs lists nails. Isn't each wall different? Different sheathing maybe, use of rainscreen or air gap or not. If I do the math of taking 2" nail and backing out the width of hardi, sheathing, acceptable penetration into stud before hitting electrical, rainscreen, I know I won't hit wires, but I also want to know that it will be correct for the siding itself.
