I just noticed I have a piece of HardiePlank® that is coming off the side of my house. What would be the best way to reattach it? I have no experience with the stuff, but it seems like a simple diy fix.

It's just my luck that the piece that's starting to come off is also at one of the highest points on the house.

From the installation instructions

Face nail with a 2" 6d or siding nail.

For good measure you could put a dab of matching color caulk behind the nail head before you nail it all the way down.
