I have a typical old Hawaiian home built with single wall (1 x 6) construction.
It has Masoninte siding that has started to deteriorate and needs repair/replacing. I pulled some of the old siding off, and found that it had been installed using staples.
What is the best way to go about repairing/replacing the siding? I wanted to use Hardiboard, but their instructions state to use either a 2” siding nail or 1-1/4’ roofing nail. As a test I took a small piece of Hardiboard and nailed it to the side of the house, and due to the single wall construction, the tip of the nail comes through to the inside of the house.
