How deformation, discoloration or tapping of siding prevented?

Did you know plastic siding expands when warm and shrinks when cold? We call this work, the work can take place deformation and / or discoloration. This problem can, however, not to do, when it meets the proper installation of siding requirements.

When installing siding must be taken into account with the possibility of expansion of the panels due to temperature differences. If no account is taken of this expansion, the wall panels can work more than usual. Extreme force may crack the top layer causing discoloration may occur. This is more common in darker color panels because they retain more heat. We would like to remodel your point to the correct assembly instructions regarding proper ventilation, discolouration or avoid tapping.

Proper installation of siding

The correct installation begins with the line of work in which the panels are attached to. The battens must have a minimum aperture and maximum spacing. The distances vary according to brand, the correct instruction you we like to refer to the specific installation instructions.

In addition to the proper distances from the lath and the cladding, it is of great importance that are used in the mounting of cladding, the ventilation profile (art.nr.423) and the ventilation sealing profile (art.nr.424). Ventilating structures ensure that there is no will behind the siding pests and air at all times at the top can be ventilated away. Can the air does not move, then the heat will accumulate. As the air accumulates there can be permanent deformation or discoloration occur.

Siding confirm loosely

By the expansion and the shrinking starts to move the panel. When mounting of facade elements must, therefore, each screw to be tightened loosely so that the panel will have the possibility to be able to move freely. If the panel is tightened up too much, voltage is built up at the point of attachment, with the result that can shoot the panel off. This gives the ticking noise as a result. If the panel does not slip, the tension remains allowing the panel to remain structurally deformed.
