Vinyl siding installation

Siding consists of PVC panels. The outer surface of the panels has a huge range of colors and perfectly mimics the structure of the tree. Compared with other materials that are used for exterior decoration, siding has a huge number of advantages: it is a good heat insulator, very resistant to temperature changes, exposure to direct sunlight, environmentally friendly material.

Vinyl siding is not subject to fire, has a very long service life of 30-40 years, does not need additional maintenance and regular renewal of colors. The low price of the material is another major advantage of it.

When facing buildings with vinyl siding, it should be remembered that the panel tends to change its original length due to the temperature difference. Of course, these changes are insignificant (we are talking about millimeters), but if the installation is not of high quality, the panel can be bent in a wave.

Strict adherence to siding assembly and installation technology will help to avoid this. Siding can be mounted on the crate or on the facade. At the top of the panels are special holes for mounting. They have an oblong shape to compensate for the displacement of the material during thermal expansion. Also for this purpose during installation it is necessary to leave a slight gap (up to two millimeters between) the panel and the nail head. The panels overlap (latch), or using the H-profile.

When installing a siding with insulation requires more attention and responsibility, and in the absence of experience to mount the siding is better to invite professionals.

For installation of vinyl siding you need the following tool:
roulette;
hacksaw;
hammer with a nail catcher;
screwdriver;
drill;
construction level (length over 60 cm);
scissors for metal;
screwdriver;
awl;
twine and chalk.
When installing siding should strictly observe all tolerances, taking into account the temperature factor. Follow the technology of assembly and installation of this material. And then, subject to these tasks, the building will acquire a completely new, individual, aesthetic appearance and will serve for a long time without losing the original properties.
