We were proud to do the siding on this spacious new home in Montreul Heights. Our work began with the building envelope. We installed Tyvek building paper, a moisture barrier that keeps the sheathing and framing dry. Next, we applied a pressure-treated rain screen nailed on top of Tyvek paper complete with bug screens. This created an air barrier between our siding material and the sheathing of the house, allowing water to drain through to prevent rot from moisture.
After passing the rain screen inspection, we then installed the Hardie siding. We ran a board and batten style where these battens ran every two feet atop the seams. To mix up the look on certain sections of the house, we used lap siding (also called plank siding).
The landscaping wasn’t totally level on this new build. This created a bit of a challenge for scaffolding, but nothing we couldn’t handle. We were happy with the beautiful result, and more importantly, so was our client.
