We are remodeling our home and the rough framing contractor has installed the necessary seismic straps over the sheathing. They say that you can install the T1-11 siding ove the seismic straps, which rise about 1/8" above the sheathing. My concern is that if you place the T1-11 over the seismic straps it will not sit flush against the sheathing and you will have an air gap. One solution is to notch out the T1-11 so it will fit flush against the sheating. Is there another solution or is my concern unfounded? Is there a simple way to notch out the T1-11 besides using a saw and chisel?

First of all T-111 is a pattern for sheet materials.

It is available in plywood, fiber cement, and "engineered" material (SmartSiding and ABT are too types).

For the plywood a round would work.

And possibly for the engineered material. But I would test it and plan on the bits wearing out.

For fiber cement I would shim out the whole wall.

In fact an air gap behind the siding can be a good things, specially if you are in a area of large amounts of rain.

Do a google on - rain curtain siding-.
