I found the above a very frustrating experience last week - to the point of ripping off all the Hardie trim this winter and putting wood back on. Hardie is very hard to nail through or screw through, even with a pilot hole - especially when you are getting physically tired and your drivers start to wear.

Plylox worked GREAT on the front of the house where there is brick, but won't fit in the back.

Someone suggested screwing the boards directly into the aluminum window frame with 1/4" screws. Seems to me it might be better to get the wind load off the window frame and onto the house frame.

Any ideas?
