INSTALLATION REMINDERS

SEE FULL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS, BELOW JUST A FEW REMINDERS:



  • PRIME ALL CUTS: Priming all cuts prevents moisture absorption & helps ensure a long lasting project. This includes cuts that can’t be seen or may not be directly exposed to weather.

  • INSTALL 6” OFF THE GROUND: Trim should be installed always at least 6” from ground.

  • INSTALL 2” ABOVE ROOF: 2” breaks are crucial on the roof and flat surfaces (porches, decks, etc.)

  • INSTALL 1/4” ABOVE FLASHING: Flashing is an imperative; and always maintain a 1/4” gap for a capillary break.

  • KEEP MATERIAL COVERED: Store on stringers and out of weather
    A - Out of weather is preferred for storage; always store flat and off the ground. If material must be stored outdoors...
    B - Store elevated; bottom of sawhorse should be at least 2’ off the ground. Keep material covered with tarp >1’ off the ground to allow for air circulation.
    C - Elevate stack in the center to prevent from pooling.
    D - Add a scrap piece in the middle to also pitch from the sides

  • Moisture Control

    MOISTURE CONTROL: Acclimate to the environment. For interior trim, store inside the structure until the products reach approx 8% moisture content. For exterior trim, store in locations such as a garage that is not heated & is well ventilated until about 14% moisture content. Do not install exterior trim boards with a moisture content over 18%.
