Lightbulb Cedar Panels on Patio Ceiling

I am planning on installing Cedar tongue and groove panels on my patio ceiling. The patio currently has cement fiber board. Should I place the Cedar tongue and groove panels over the cement panel board or should I remove the cement fiber board and then install the Cedar tongue and groove panels? Thanks!

Is the ceiling over your patio insulated? If so I would leave the cement board up. If you take it down there a chance the insulation will fall down with it. If there is no insulation then it's up to you. It's more work to remove the cement board but it will make driving nails easier when installing the cedar. Also consider any electrical boxes in the ceiling. If you just put the cedar on top you may need box extenders because of the additional ceiling thickness.
