16 Text goes here Agenda HardieTrim Fig 7.17 Installation of HardieTrim HZ without Trim Tabs Installation of Outside Corners: Pre-Built Corner Installation Corners made from 5/4 or 4/4 HardieTrim boards should be pre- assembled before theyre installed. A pre-assembled corner looks better and makes the installation quicker. Step 1: Pre-Build the Corner Trim To join two pieces of 5/4 or 4/4 HardieTrim boards for a corner: Drive a (2) 16 ga Corrosion-resistant finish nail (½) in from the edge & spaced (16) apart along the length of the corner trim. (9) 16 ga finish nails per 12 piece of HardieTrim. Step 2: Fastening the Pre-Built Corner Trim to the Wall To Fasten (4) Corners to the Wall: Drive one finish nail into each face of the corner with the nails spaced (16) apart. To Fasten (6) Corners to the Wall: Drive a pair of finish nails into each face of the corner with the nails spaced (16) apart. Nails should be kept (3/4) from the edges of the HardieTrim and (1) from the ends. Fig 7.15 1 2 3

17 Text goes here Agenda HardieTrim Fig 7.16 Installation of HardieTrim HZ without Trim Tabs Installation of Outside Corners: Weather Cuts When walls are more than (12) high, splice corner boards together using weather cuts of at least a 22.5 o angle. The angle of the weather cut must slope downward and away from the building. Nail both boards to the building with the same attachment schedule as for pre-built corners. Paint or Prime ALL Cut Edges DO NOT Install ANY Trim products over James Hardie Siding. Fig 7.18 Installation of Inside Corners: Single & Double Inside Corners can be made with either a single 5/4 or 4/4 HardieTrim board in the corner, or with one board on each wall depending on the desired look. NOTE: 5/4 HardieTrim is to be used with all James Hardie Siding Products in a butt-too installation method. 4/4 HardieTrim is to be used over HardiePanel ONLY.

18 Text goes here Agenda Any width of 5/4 or 4/4 HardieTrim can be used for Band Board depending on the type of detail desired. When installing the band board, pay special attention to the flashing details and allow for water egress. Make sure that the weather resistant barrier laps over the flashing for a continuous drainage plane. Caulk between the underside of the band board and the siding below. (where permitted by local building codes). Install an inverted J Trim for the last course of the lap siding to terminate into. Maintain a min. (1/4) gap between the horizontal flashing and the James Hardie Siding above it. Do not caulk between the flashing and the siding above the band board. If running HardiePlank or HardieShingle above the band board, make sure to use a starter strip just like below, to maintain the correct plank angle. Small periodic gaps should be left in the starter strip to provide an escape route for excess moisture that may drain down behind the siding.

21 Text goes here Agenda HardieTrim Installation of HardieTrim HZ without Trim Tabs Installation of the Window & Door Trim: Windows & Doors must be installed per the manufacturers instructions. Once the HardieTrim is installed, a drip flashing must be installed above the trim & lapped under the weather resistant barrier correctly. Install HardieTrim around doors & windows using the cap over method, which means that the header or horizontal top piece of trim extends and caps over the vertical jamb legs on either side of the door or window. For windows, the bottom trim piece fits between the vertical jamb legs. For Cap-Over Trim Installation: 1)Start by measuring the length of the bottom edge of the window. (not including the nailing flange). Cut a piece of trim to that length and install it. 2)Next measure from the bottom of the installed trim to the top of the window. (not including the nailing flange). Cut two pieces of trim to that length and install them on either side of the window. 3)For the Cap, measure the distance from the outside edge of both vertical jamb legs. Cut a piece of HardieTrim and Install it. For Doors the Process is the same except that it starts with the vertical side jamb legs. (Step 2) 1 2 3
