I have Hardie Plank on my home, and I would like to hang a decorative wall hanging to one of the walls of my screened porch. What can I use to attach a hanger to the hardiplank that will allow me to hang the wall hanging.
I have tried the 3-M wall hangers that “stick” to the siding but they are not strong enough. I would like to use a decorative hanger maybe something made out of wrought iron, but I don't know what I can use to attach it.
Can I nail into Hardie Plank or use a cement screw?
The best way to attach to Hardie Plank siding is by using nails or screws. To avoid cracking the siding, pilot drill the siding first, using drill bit a little smaller than the nail or screw. And to make the sure the hole you are forming doesn't leak, caulk the hole before driving in the fastener.
