I'm residing a cabin that has 1/2" (actual) thickness, 4' X 8' wood panel exterior. I was going to replace it with painted 19/32 LP SmartSide panels but no one carries it within 300 miles of St. Louis. All the trim, windows and doors are set for 1/2" exterior siding. Fiber cement panels are too thin. Anyone have ideas for 1/2" panels that will require infrequent painting? I want to avoid shimming all the studs with .3125 SmartSide panels.
