Vinyl siding is installed at home today,Commercial buildings,Exterior buildings and any structure have areas exposed to the weather.The siding is available in aluminum and vinyl, but vinyl is more popular today.The siding is matched or contrasting in a range of colors as well as accessories to the siding.Before buying your sidingTake the time to look around other homes or businesses to see how they do their color matching and trimming.It may give you some ideas that you might not have thought of doing your project.Different manufacturers make different colors, so look around and make sure that the color you choose is ready-made in stock if you need extra work.The siding has different sizes and patterns as well.Cabin siding,4 over 4,5 over 5,8 "and other styles are available.The siding offered by some companies looks like a rocking strap or a circular rocking strap that can add a dramatic effect to the home that ends with an ordinary Gable.More than 4 siding means that when you look at the siding,It seems to be 2 4 "high boards,One in the other.More than 5 are 2 5 "boards, etc.The smaller size makes the larger house look shorter, and the larger size makes the smaller house look higher.I have seen the siding mounted on the tilt but it is very tricky and should not try that you are your project.Stay, later.Required Tools-Measuring tape,pad,pencil,ladders,scaffolds,A pair of sausages,A 14-long jagged board,saw,Quick Square,4' level,Razor and blade,siding punch,pair of Snips,hammer,Tripod and level (Rent at local rental exit).Scaffolding and Handrails may be necessary.MATERIALS-Siding,starter strip,J-bead,Vinyl corners,F-bead,Insulated back panel,Aluminum nails.Installation-You have to carefully measure all the areas you want to cover with the siding.Measure length and width (or height)Each area and the measurement results are recorded.Unless there are too many windows.Ignore them now.Do all the math multiplied by the length of the width to get the square feet of the siding you need.Using even the lens,not inches.If all your measurements reach 1600 square feetEach case has 2 square meters of siding,So you need 8 boxes in total.No half box.You need 9 boxes for 1700 square feet.You will need additional siding after cutting and repairing in any case.The starter strip measures the bottom around the wall at once.The 30' x 30' building uses a starter strip of 120 straight feet.Soffit J and other trims are a bit hard to imagine.Depending on how the soffit panel is installed,You need at least enough F-If you only use it on the wall, the beads go all the way around the building.If you use it twiceOnce on the fascia, once on the wall,Double the amount.I use F-The passage is only once on the wall above my siding.I terminate the siding on soffit F-channel,use a J-The wall panel at the top of the passage is punched with the termination strip and the wall panel, and then bent my metal fascia at L-The angle covers the end of the fascia plate and the soffit panel.Neat,Clean and cheap.J pieces will be required for each window and door opening-And the channel.Measure each of all 4 aspects and add that length to your j-channel.J-The channel is in 10' length.Okay, let's start.With your tripodLevel and assistant,You have to build a building to follow around the elevation line.This is where your starter strip will be nailed.Don't try to measure it with tape.If this line is not all levels,The side plate line will not match when you turn a corner.The building is not the perfect level,ever.You create the wrong appearance of the level,By setting the line and starting the mark on your siding.You may find that you have to put a little bit of plywood off the line so as not to wire out the rest of the plywood at the bottom.Starter strips can be hung under plywood.Once you have a horizontal line, no part of the siding will start the plywood bottom above,You can nail your starter bar to the building.The starter strips are metal, so cut them with your sniper.The nail 16 "is always at each end in the center with the nail.Use the longest possible length to avoid joints.The installation of the correct starter strips will be tiled over the building, with the bottom pointing away from the building,Not for it.Install your corner now.The corner is pre-made,Color coded and in 10' length.When DingTalk, keep the corner slightly below the start bar.This will guarantee that the siding at the bottom is a piece that is completely inside the corner and looks good and tidy.Nail angle 16' OC.Your siding will end in these corners.The first piece of siding is locked into the starter strip and gets it done in a bunch of joints that can be a bear.If you install nails-This is the time to do so in insulation.Cover 4-5-The Wall starts at 6 feet.Keep the joints as tight as possible.The first siding.Siding at 12 '-"6", length, so you want to find out the least waste.When one wall is on the other,Open joints will be created.Face the open end of the Union from the road or gale.Install the first piece, first place it under the starter strip and pull it up until the siding on the bottom slot is locked to the starter strip.Don't pull the siding up to such a point, you actually put the pressure on the starter strip.The siding should sit loosely on the starter strip.Nail wall 16 "OC,Place the nail in the middle of the slot on the top edge of the siding.Don't drive them home!You want the siding to slide back and forth as the temperature changes.It does expand and contract.If you take the nail home and lock the siding in placeThe siding will buckle.Also when installing your siding in warm weather and the siding is hot,Keep the end of the siding about.1/2 "from the end of the corner slot.When the siding is cold,Keep the end of the siding about.1 "from the end of the slot, so there is room for expansion.Measured from the top of the wall panel to the end of the wall,If your next piece of siding is smaller than the full piece.You want the cut end of your siding to go into the corner trim and keep it "half", left and right from the end.The siding overlaps with each other and locks together.When done correctly,The top edge of the siding will have a "half" gap between the nail slot part of the siding.Each siding moves independently, so apart from the corners and trim,The siding has never been nailed to a firm or "hard" wall.This will require some custom to do the installation of this part.Insulation with the back siding will tend to jump around a little bit without giving a solid surface to nail.You'll catch up soon, but don't be afraid to pull the nail back and reset a new one.Now it's when you really see what architecture looks like.The siding application is very fast, if you have a material that helps cut and supply you,It goes faster.Most carpenters will set up a fixture in their saw horse, such that a complete siding will lay flat allowing easy marking to cut.Cutting can be done with snipers, but plywood blades are mounted back on your power saw,Make the vinyl siding cut short work.Remember to delete the blade when you did it!Don't try and cut plywood back with blades!!!When installing the blade, always unplug the saw and wear safety glasses when using the saw.When you encounter the opening of the window and the door, the edge of the door is cut,that's easy,The windows are a bit difficult.The bottom of the window will never fall on the bottom of a wall panel.This is a strange law.This will require a cut, leaving the window to open at the top of the siding and must be at J-Trim the channel window.Remember to leave the room at the end of the expansion and in j-The channel slot is on both sides of the window as well.When any siding is nailedAvoid pulling up the lock on the block under which the siding is hard.You want the new piece to be balanced in the middle of the slot.Not at the bottom,Not hard to top.Every few pieces,Step back and make sure you are installing the siding level.Pulled on the siding and didn't realize it,Will cause the level of the siding to run out quickly.Check the new piece of siding of your 4' horizontal lower lip to see if it's actually level before nailing.Top of wall-Okay, we're at the top of the wall.Everything looks straight and horizontal so we want to finish the wall.Measure from the bottom of the lock to the top of the wall.If this is a big one,The last piece will be cut in the thickest part of the siding,You can install only one j-channel,Sliding sheet in place and j-The channel will keep it.Not likely,so,You installed a piece of j-The finished look of all the edges around the Channel, and then install a piece of termination strip inside.The trim flange is wide enough that you can pin one on the other without damaging the other piece.Use your siding,The piece that works every 16 "or so of the entire length along the cutting edge and punching.You will see that the flat part of the siding that it is cut now has holes, material, "perforated" outA bump was formed on the siding.When you install the sidingThe bumper will lock to the termination bar and keep the siding in place.Only occasionally, then only the siding on the top is on the gable end,a small (4 penny)The Galvanized finish nail will be driven through the siding to ensure that the last piece is not unlocked and dropped.This only works in a very small piece, high enough, so the nails can't be seen.Vinyl siding slot punch is really handy.Simply slide on the top edge of the Chin siding and close the punch.It will create a dimples that will hold the siding in j-channel.Unlocking tools for vinyl siding.Very convenient when a piece of siding has to be removed.Just slide it to the back, enter the lock and slide it along the length, thus removing a piece in the middle of the wall when unlocking the siding.You have to have a nice pair of sharp snipers to do a weird cut.The razor also requires very small adjustments or siding pieces.Always remember to stay away from you.Maintenance-Over time, all vinyl siding fades with the sun.It's usually gradual and not obvious unless you put a new piece next to it.When a wall plate is replaced due to damage,Expect to see a color change.Good washing once a year with vinyl siding cleaner helps keep your siding bright and nice looking.Cleaners are available in 1 gallon bottles in most hardware or retail lumber plants.Occasionally a piece may be unlocked in strong winds.You can reinstall it using the side panel unlock tool.Just slide it under the siding until the tip is on the lock and pull down to force the block that locks below and slide it long until the whole block is re-locked.It needs some muscles, but it can do, much less work than removing all the siding.Fascia trims-The fascia material can be rolled in different widths.Once you measure how wide the fascia plate is (8")Plus the angle that must be bent to cover the edge of the soffit panel,etc.(1")You know before each piece needs a 9 "wide bend.18 "width rolled in (among others)So you will be able to get 2 pieces from each piece you cut.You will need a sheet metal brake for this work.Do not try to bend the material using 2x4 or by hand.It will be just wrinkles and destroyed.Sheet metal brakes are 8 'and 10' in length.Rent 10' brakes if possible.Less joints,less work.The edges will be sharp when installing the metal, so care is needed.Using color matching aluminum nails,Put a piece on the fascia.At the edge of the drip and at the bottom 1 "legs at both ends of the soffit panel.The tendon diaphragm will look like an L with an 8 "leg and a 1" and the legs are measured using our sample.Use as little nails as possible.Excessive use of nails can cause the fascia, "Oil Can", or when bending, the sun heats the metal.The fascia can be cut with a tin sniper.You will soon learn to bend corners,Small cover,etc.Make your job look goodRemember to always lap your work with the top one in the lower rain, whichever happens.The fascial end joint should again face the wind direction away from the road or popular, as long as possible.Once you have completed a small siding projectA bigger project is basically the same,It only involves more materials and a lot of Labor.With careful measurement and application, you will have minimal waste of materials and can save thousands of dollars by doing this project yourself.
