What material is best for furring strips behind Hardie Reveal panels?
Looking for the best material to use as 1×4 furring strips behind Hardi reveal panels? I have been told Douglas Fir is best cost and rot resistant, some say Western red cedar (sounds expensive), Pressure treated wood, or Trex (plastic wood alternative), or of course there is the metal varieties.
One issue is read with PT wood is that any contact with aluminum or other metals causes corrosion so you have to paint over that (more expense)
Cost is an issue so i was going towards the route of doug fir?
