I am interested in putting Hardy Plank siding. I currently have Louisiana Pacific. The "Pro" at the local hardware store (who has siding business experience) said it was okay to install it directly over the LP siding. Provided there is no rot or damage. Is this true? Please help...

What kind of LP siding?

If sheet wood product, the answer is yes. The next question is whether you have tarpaper or house wrap as part of the wall system already - you probably want to add a Tyvek

Excellence is its own reward!
