Hi. Whether you see the fasteners or not depends on the type of fiber cement product you're using. 'Hardieplank' is a horizontal lapped siding, and if it's smaller in profile, the nails are under the overlap, so you don't see them. 'Hardiepanel' comes in big sheets, and you will see the fasteners. Typically these are painted out the color of the siding, so they go away. The product above is an integral color fiber cement called 'Cembonit'. This siding comes with color matched fasteners, and they don't really stick out. Good luck with your project!

Hi. There are gaps at the corners. The siding is installed over a rainscreen. Thanks for your interest.

This siding is an integral color fiber cement product called 'Cembonit'. I believe that it is no longer distributed in the US. 'Swisspearl' or 'Minerit' would be similar products.
Thanks for asking.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Fiber cement panels can also be used in horizontal patterns to resemble oversize siding. Here wide bands in gray meet vertical cedar planks toward the front of the house.
