Has anyone experienced problems installing Hardi siding over Zip R ?
I am building a “high performance” home in S E Dallas. I am concerened about Hardi siding staying attached, long term, when it is nailed through 1/2″ OSB with 1/2″ foam (Zip R). The siding will be blind nailed, properly. I have heard complaints by others that the nails worked loose due to expansion and contraction of the foam, causing extensive warranty issues for the builder. Having an extensive background in framing and general carpentry, I am doubtful of this zip R product in this situation. I would like to hear from anyone who has used this product in the manner described.
