Using it now. Work in progress. Love the look, a bit tedious to install but looks much better than vinyl. I am using pre-painted, SS siding screws for fasteners, and Azek trim boards.
If you keep your eyes open and know what you’re looking for you will see it out there on buildings. They used it on some of the PA turnpike service plaza buildings. Certainteed has a version out also.

I want to do my house, but I have block construction, so I'm looking at this since I will need furring ...

They are coming out with new stuff it seems almost as soon as you get done with a project, I often think about doing something like that with my basement walls, I don't have a mold problem but wonder if I would if the air movement were taken away.

Have you looked over the installation paperwork? You must understand the expansion spacing and caulking instructions.....Unless you are an octopus, you will not be doing it alone, just too flexible....and heavy. No matter what they tell you, you should plan on finding the existing frame layout and try to hit studs where possible. All that glitters isn't necessarily gold. Special blades and cutting tools required to do it right. I don't feel that it is for 'happy homeowners', you need your head screwed on correctly do have a good job. If you are an 'up=close' guy, you may not like the look of it. I can't see it from here, so it is not my issue. Check out a few jobs in your area before you commit. If possible, look over a few that have been installed for a few years. :idea: :idea:

Yeah, I did my little barn with Hardy. This job is too big for me, my first bid came in at $42,500 OUCH.... It's a lot of work and its a block house so extra work needs to be done to prep for Hardy Plank.

Looks like I will have to settle for something else... bummer, I really like the stuff..
