Do you install any flashing along the horizontal seams? - I've seen that others have installed z-flashing along the horizontal seams even when using the rainscreen vertical batten system with fiber cement panels. From the pictures, it doesn't look like flashing was used. Is there anything (ie battens) behind the horizontal seams? Or were the seams caulked?

This appears to be a rain barrier system with what appears to be Swiss pearl panels or something similar. The Swiss pearl panels that we install are made of fiberglass.

How is the reveal between the panels detailed? Is there a certain channel profile that you used?.....or just a dark underlayment in the background?

Is it a reverse board and batten? Is there a vertical/horizontal seal? on the reverse ? or is flashing necessary on the vertical?
Love the look, just want to ensure it will pass code in British Columbia, Canada?
Thanks

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to 9 Top Siding Materials
Fiber Cement PanelsLarge sheets (often 4 feet by 8 feet) of fiber cement panels create a flat, uniform surface treatment with shadow lines at the reveals where the panels meet. The aesthetic tends to be more contemporary but the same approach can be used in a Prairie-style home by placing battens over the panel joints as here. Cost: about $7 to $10 per square foot installed.More about fiber cement panels
A closeup of the slate volume shows the exposed fasteners that ring the perimeter of each fiber cement panel.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Seal the Deal With Fiber Cement Siding
The secret's in the joint. The fiber cement panels can be butted to each other or can be installed with a reveal between each panel. The James Hardie company has developed a simple installation system when a reveal is desired. While this reveal creates a distinct shadow line that is perfect for a contemporary design, the joints between panels can be treated in several ways.
