Hardi Board and Hardi Plank Siding

So, we can't use cement asbestos board. LP and composite wood sidings are problematic. Wood is expensive and of lower quality. What now? There are no simple answers. One newer and promising product on the market is Hardi Board and Hardi Plank. These are concrete composite products and look like bevel or lap siding. The reports, so far, are very promising.
