Where did you source the rubber strips that go on the rain screen battens for the silbonit?

Also noteworthy - If you use Hardie Panel with the open joint rainscreen (like this project), it voids the mfg warranty. It is still used this way though, on single family and multi family residential projects in the Seattle area.

Hi - that's a custom 3" diameter stainless steel tube, with a hole above to receive the rainwater from the roof, and another at the base to drain it. The EPDM membrane on the roof is flashed into the upper hole. The post is structural, and has welded tabs to engage with the concrete footing, and the roof framing. Thanks,

The use of the structural downspout is genius. Thank you for the idea!

Silbonet Cement Fiber Panels - how much will color fade in 5-10 years - I am interested in using the panels for my house, but I cannot find any published information on fading as I can find for Swiss Pearl and Cembrit Zenit. Any information would be helpful.

It's a European cement-board panel product called Cembonit. It has integral color, meaning it doesn't need painting like Hardi-panel. A similar product called Silbonit has the same properties, and is made in the U.S. They are more expensive than typical cement-board products, but can pay for themselves over time by not having to be re-painted every few years
