The installation of a wooden exterior siding requires careful preparation. This step is important to prepare the surface to be covered, but also to ensure the protection of the materials before and during the work.
All sidings manufactured by Group SIDEX are covered by a 50-year guarantee against rot. However, the owner must ensure that all stages of the project comply with the instructions given by Group SIDEX during the purchase.
Before starting an exterior siding project, you must first designate and clear a suitable place for the storage of materials before and during the work.
Upon receipt of the product, the purchaser should check the condition of all materials and contact the manufacturer if any items are damaged or missing. This step is important because warranties do not cover coverings damaged before or during their installation. To prevent the siding from deforming during storage, SIDEX experts recommend installing the siding as soon as possible after receipt.
If you ever need to temporarily store your siding, make sure the area is dry and not subject to sudden changes in temperature or humidity. The materials must be placed in a ventilated place and at a distance of 15 cm from the ground. If the package is stored outside before or during the work, it must absolutely be kept under a waterproof canvas, even on sunny days.
In addition to checking the color and quantity of siding and finish, certain tools are essential to ensure optimal siding installation.
Before installing the siding, you must first make sure that the surface has good general flatness. If the surface has significant unevenness, the siding may wear out more quickly. The owner must therefore make the necessary adjustments before installing his siding.
In addition, the siding installer must ensure that flashings and weather screens are in good condition and that they comply with applicable codes. This step prevents damage caused by water infiltration.
The next step is to install the furring on which the covering will be attached. Depending on the dimensions and the dimensions and the profile of the siding, the dimensions and arrangement of the furs vary. In general, furs are made with slats of SFP (fir, jack pin and spruce) or with plywood. Larger buildings may have steel furring.
