Rather than using wood strips as starters on the bottom, strips can be ripped from pieces of the HardiPlank. This will prevent rotting or wood eating insects from damaging the strips.

In fibre cement there is a fibre reinforcement, which contributes to making the fibre-cement material even stronger. http://www.hekimyapi.com

I followed the steps to intall some hardie to an add on room we built. Instead of using wood at corners and other areas, i found metal trim made my Tamlyn.com. I used their starter strips, pank inside corner, window flashing and lap siding clips to cover up the joints. I rather spend the extra money in the materias that have caulk fail quick. I also used their soffit vents. In south Texas with temps rising above 100 degrees in the summer we can use the additional air flow that the Tamlyn vents provide.
