Edge Treatment of Zip board and Hardie Panel at end of deck
I’m replacing the door and windows in a sunroom, along with the siding, using Zip boards and vertical Hardie Panel with quarter inch rain screen furring. This gets me back to the thickness of the original vertical shiplap that was nailed directly to the studs over roofing felt back in the day. I’ll finish it off with battens. These are new materials to me, but there’s lots of info out there on their use, so I’m comfortable with what I’ve done, so far. On the wall corner edges, which will meet up with rock, I’ll use 5.5″ trim with a small corner piece attached to cover the fiber cement and Zip board edges.
But I’m at a loss about how to treat those edges where they meet the end of the deck, which is not at the end of the wall. About all I’ve come up with is to do the same thing as at the ends of the wall, but use a very narrow front facing trim piece and paint it the wall color to make it “go away.” Is there a better way to do this? Thanks for any advice!
