Siding is applied to the walls of a house as a means of protecting the walls from water, the effects of weather, to provide insulation, and just as importantly to provide major aesthetic look to the structure. Siding can be used on its own or also often it is used as combination with masonry or stucco, custom cladding.
Exterior siding finish made of all types of materials such as vinyl, wood, aluminum, metal, fiber cement or composite and is normally attached directly to the building structure (or studs in the case of wood construction), or to an intermediate layer of wood (boards, planks, plywood, oriented strand board) called strapping or sheeting.
Siding is usually fitted as horizontal (lap siding) or vertical boards (Board and Batten siding) , vinyl shakes or scallops siding, sheet materials. Whichever method is chosen, the most important aspect is to prevent wind and rain infiltration through the joints and this is normally achieved by overlapping, covering or sealing the joints, or by creating an interlocking joint such as a tongue and groove or rabbet. Normally, rigid, fixed joints are avoided between siding materials as they tend to expand and contract depending on the weather and temperature, often resulting in leaks if the boards can’t move with the temperature differentials.
