hardyplank stucco board??

Anyone ever use it? How do you apply it? and what do you put over the seams? It comes in 4x8 sheets and was wanting to put it on my garage.
Thanks
Rusty

I've not had any dealings with the hardi board stucco sheets but I've painted a lot of the old masonite stucco panels. Generally they are trimmed out with cedar [or any wood] which hides the joints.

Here's some pics of hardipanel stucco:

(4 of 8 through 8 of 8)

In 5 of 8 and 8 of 8, you can see what the joints look like when they are simply caulked. When you get back about 20 feet, they disappear almost completely. They can simply be joined together and caulked, or as Marksr mentioned, something can cover the seam if you prefer. But the batten strips aren't always aesthetically pleasing.

The siding is nailed with hot dipped or electro galvanized nails or stainless steel nails, 6d-7d is preferred. Siding guns shoot a 2 3/8" ring shanked hardipanel nail that works well.

The stucco comes in 4x8, 4x9 or 4x10 sheets.
