The siding elements are attached to the frame structure, which provides the creation of a flat and vertical plane and determines the external shape of the building. The elements of such a frame are bars, boards or metal profiles, which are fastened to the wall with nails, self-tapping screws or dowels.

On the resulting frame the cladding is fixed with the help of small nails, which are hammered into the inside of the connecting groove. Installation is carried out from the bottom to the top, evenly around the perimeter of the house, checking the horizontality of each row. The last stage is the installation of additional elements (on corners, openings, etc.). With their help the appearance of the house acquires completeness.

The final process of finishing the house fake wood siding in Sacramento is the application of a protective coating, such as varnish, to its exterior surface. In addition, this solution can improve the aesthetic appearance of the siding.

Insulating the house with wooden siding

The need to attach siding laths to the frame allows you to simultaneously perform the finishing process and insulation of the walls of the house. To do this, the insulator is placed in the cells formed by the elements of the frame. However, the order of works in this option is slightly different.

First of all, it is necessary to protect the insulation from moisture, which can penetrate it both from the outside and from the inside. For this purpose, two vapor-permeable layers are formed - one directly on the surface of the wall, the second on the frame. In this way, the insulator is placed between two layers that allow vapor to pass from the house to the outside and are completely impermeable to it in the opposite direction.

Secondly, when insulating the house with modern wood siding in Sacramento, it is necessary to create an air gap between it and the second layer of the vapor barrier, which provides ventilation of the space under the siding to remove moisture vapor. It is formed by bars attached to the frame, which additionally hold the second layer of vapor barrier.
