I recently completed the 34 sq. of siding on my new house. I used Hardie clapboard – 5″ reveal and hardie trim. All good and looks great.
Here’s the problem: When I was swinging the lift away from the house, I zigged when I should have zagged and dented/broke a piece of siding. This dent/break ocurred 10 feet or so down the wall; so I opted not to remove siding down to that point. The spot is about 3 inches high and 5 inches wide and is more of an indentation than an actual break. I’m concerned that water will continue to wear over this spot and create other problems. Is there a recommended procedure for filling or repairing such a spot?
