Siding has gained its popularity in Harleysville for its ease of installation and excellent performance. Siding installation can be carried out personally, but it is necessary to have some certain knowledge. Special tools are required for installation of the siding. It should also be kept in mind that siding, like any finishing materials, will expand or shrink due to temperature impact, therefore you should avoid the tension of the panels and not nail them on the crate tightly. Most often a gap of 2 or 3 mm is enough.
Siding panels are fastened with galvanized self-tapping screws, which have a rounded head and do not have a drill. Fastening of the siding should be carried out only in the center, and not from the edges.
If the house has uneven walls, then you will need a crate. When performing siding without crates, all uneven surfaces of the walls will be visible. However, experts recommend even with ideal walls to make a crate to provide the ventilation of the facade or to insulate the walls.
