Siding Installation

Any material used to cover the exterior walls of a house or other residential building is known as siding. By keeping the elements out, it defends the house. Siding seals off all of the exterior walls of your house, forming a watertight barrier that keeps out rain, snow, and blustery winds. Siding has additional purposes as well, such as keeping out dust, dampness, and insects. Keeping water out of the house is crucial since nothing will harm a home as much as it will. The most popular varieties of siding are vinyl, wood, and fiber cement, which are what most people imagine when they think of it. There are various varieties of siding, though.

New siding is available in a myriad of styles, colours and textures, which allows you to alter the look of your house to suit the style and needs of your individual.

What is Siding Installation

Installing siding on a home’s exterior is known as siding installation. After a house is framed, the sheathing is installed. The sheathing is 4 x 8 plywood sheets that are fastened to the house’s frame using nails. Due to its lack of water resistance, plywood needs to be protected. The moisture barrier is subsequently attached to the sheathing. The term “underlayment” is frequently used to describe this.

All of our external trim elements, such as Azek, j-channel, starter strips, and flashing, are installed after the underlayment has been put in place and all seams, windows, and doors have been taped. When everything is finished, we begin installing the siding.

The process of installing siding is top-down. Galvanized nails that resist rust are used to fasten pieces to the house’s frame. Each course is installed over the one before it and overlaps it. This prevents water from penetrating behind and onto the sheathing, allowing it to flow down the outside surface. The moisture barrier prevents any water from leaking behind the siding if it does. Up till we reach the top, we install new courses continuously.

Each type of material has its own specific installation needs. Therefore, if you’re putting fiber cement, look for a business that understands how to do it right. When doing house inspections, improper installation is by far the main reason for water damage that we discover.

 

Additionally, the installation requirements vary depending on the style. Vinyl board and batten are installed differently from vinyl horizontal plank, which is installed differently from vinyl cedar shake impressions.

Wood Working

Due to their durability and affordability, redwood, cedar, and pressure-treated wood are three popular choices for wood decks. For years, cedar has been used for decking because it is naturally resistant to rot, insects, and moisture, and it does not bend, twist, or split like other types of wood. If you want something less expensive than cedar or redwood, pressure-treated lumber is a good option. Deck builders in the United States use it to construct deck support systems because it is durable.
