I want to "cover" the outside of the deck trim because the look of treated wood isn't good. But if I use deck material (composite) to run around, it's going to be expensive. I am planning to just use Textured Strand Lap Siding / Concrete Board because they are cheap and durable. But I have several questions:
Can Textured Strand Lap Siding attach to treated lumber using screws without causing problems (like loosen over the year or chemical reaction)?
The board is 0.5" thick and I plan to paint similar color (I can match). Is this a good idea in general, especially coming to durability?
The board I like to get is "SmartSide 8 in. x 144 in. Textured Strand Lap Siding" (just FYI) from home improvement store.
