Please keep in mind that because of the expansion and contraction nature of our material, there would need to be adequate spacing built into your installation. As a result, when installing in cold weather, you will want to build space for the boards to expand, and when installing in hot weather, you will want to install in such a way that the boards can contract without issue. Allowing your boards to acclimate to their environment for 24-48 hours before installing would also serve as best practices. Detailed expansion and contraction values can be found on page 7 of the siding installation guide here: https://www.newtechwood.com/pdf/Siding_Installation.pdf.
