Cement based siding can be installed similar to traditional siding instalation techniques. Simply nail at the top of the board to either plywood or studs.

 

However, there are a couple of "untraditional" methods you need to consider;

 

Cement board requires a special blade to cut the siding with. Diablo 7-1/4 in. x 6 Tooth Carbide Hardie Circular Saw Blade

 

Sometimes when using cement based products like siding and trim boards - you may need to pre-drill your nail holes. 

 

 

 

                  Grip-Rite 2-1/2 in. 8D Hot-Galvanized Spiral Siding Nails (5 lb. Pack)

 

One more thing...You may need help with the longer sections of siding... If the siding bends too much it will snap in half.
