Siding is best secured to the pre-assembled crate.We work in the following order.

first step - choose the material

The scheme of calculating the amount of siding for the cladding homes

scheme for calculating the amount of siding for the cladding

frame house can be assembled from a wooden beam or metal profile.Metal more durable and long lasting.In addition, the metal lath is fixed much easier to uneven ground.

Setting profiles is done with half-meter increments.To attach to the wall using hangers.This technique will allow to level the surface of the drops and to fix the level of the frame elements.

Vertical battens

vertical battens

wooden crate cheaper.With this option, pay attention to the condition of the wood.It is forbidden to:

  • sloilsya material;
  • was deformed;
  • had bluish stains and traces of rot, etc.

elements wooden crates need to be impregnated with flame retardant and antiseptic.If the house is built of wooden elements, the walls should also be treated with these drugs.

second stage - preparing base

easiest crate fixed to a flat surface.First remove any items that may interfere.This is all kinds of tiles, bars, frames, gutters, etc.

third stage - set guide

Siding is best to mount horizontally.Bars or profiles of battens in this case, fix vertically.

for fixing rails to the wooden walls using nails or screws.If the house is built of concrete blocks or bricks, fastened with dowels, pre-drill out an opening into the wall of the house.

Each rail is aligned with the standards.

Important!If you plan to carry out the external wall insulation, siding crate to best strengthen after the completion of all the insulation work.In this case, there will be two lathing: Insulation and cladding.Thus the two racks must be placed carcasses parallel.

You can, of course, to try to lay the insulating layers after fixing battens for siding, but it is not very convenient.

Mount J-profiles

Start guides should be fixed perfectly, becauseon the correctness of their installation depends on the quality of the entire lining.

Starting profiles should be installed horizontally

Starting profiles should be installed horizontally

first step. Take the level and find the lowest point in the crate.Retreat from it up to 50 mm and set the mark.For this little screw is screwed into the rail.

second step. consistently moving around the building and continue to put the screws to fix the label starting profiles.Also, screws are screwed in the corners of the house.

third step. We stretch between the corner marks of the rope.

fourth step.Note the rails on the border alignment profiles.Take the profile itself, applying it to the corner of the frame structure and put tags on the edges with a pencil.

Mark the location of the edges of the mounting brackets with crate

fifth step. Going down the rope, do 6 mm horizontal clearance from the edge of the corner profiles and start the guide to fix the frame rails.

Important!Between profiles leave 1-inch clearance to compensate for thermal strains.

between the start and guide bars Gvozdeva leave a gap.

to do 6 mm padding, you can cut part Gvozdeva strips so that when temperature changes are not rested on the J-channel.

Important!Starting profiles should be mounted horizontally!Correct deviation as much time as you need.

If you set guides with deviations from the level of siding too skewed.Fix it in the future will be extremely difficult.

mount external corner profiles

Mounting of external corner profile siding

Attaching an external angular profile siding

first step.Mark up spotlights.We need to see where the future will be the edges of these elements.

second step.We put guide to the corner of the frame.We are doing it with a 3-mm gap to the soffit or roof.Fasten profile with screws.

lower border element is placed 0.6 cm below the edge of the starting profile.

third step.Check vertical installation.If there is no deviation, fix the bottom, and then - other places.Experts do not recommend positioning the fasteners too often angular elements.

The principle of increasing the length of the angular profile

principle of increasing angular profile in length

If the house is more than 300 cm, the profiles will have to impose on one another.To do this, clipped the top profile.As a result, between the bars abutting elements must remain 9mm gap.When laying the cell to withstand a 2.5 cm overlap.

Important!Profiles mating flush on each side of the house.

If the base has a protruding structure, shorten the profile to remain 6 mm gap between it and the cap.

Tip:Instead of the angular profile may be installed J-2 element (starting).So you can save money.But there is this solution and its lack - the angle is not as tight as with special angular profile.Deciding to use this method, pre-seal the wall of a similar angle strip rolled waterproofing material.

Using two starting siding O- profiles instead of the corner

Using two starting J-profiles, siding instead of angular

Mount internal corner profiles

Mounting of these elements does not differ substantially from the technology arrangement of exterior angles - between the profile and the soffit reserve indent 3 mm, the lower theend profile drops below J-strap 0.6 cm

If there protruding from the bottom base or other element, distracting from the overall level, between him and the profile also reserve 6mm indent -. it is impossible to profile the internal angle rested against him.

There are 3 methods of internal angles of arrangement, see Figure.

If the height of the wall is more than 300 cm, perform splicing profiles.The technology is the same as in the arrangement of the exterior angles.

Example of matching profiles internal angle

between slats reserve 9mm indent, carefully cutting off the excess material.Overlap the top element on the bottom - 2.5 cm. Fasteners are set to 4-cm increments, placing them strictly at the center designated holes.Exception - the highest point.Here fasteners must be installed in the upper part of the hole.

Mount frame openings

Most inexperienced masters difficulties arise precisely at the stage of framing of window and door openings.Operation will vary depending on how to arrange the openings with respect to the wall plane.

Technique connection okolookonnyh profiles

In this case, do the following.

first step. perform waterproofing openings.

second step. openings are mounted on frames or the J-profiles.Each opening Equips with 4 trims: the pair of vertical and horizontal pairs.

third step.Putting profiles.

Methods of connection profiles okolookonnyh

Technique connection okolookonnyh profiles

To Connect casings were the most accurate, so do:

  • create incisions, bridges on each side of the upper structure;
  • turn down the bridges down to atmospheric precipitation discharged into the bottom of the profile;
  • remove pieces of material on the sides of the elements that prevent connection to trim or top;
  • connect the side and top profiles.As a result, the bridges must be inside the profiles.

Take the time to understand the principles of folding such bridges.We make them so that they cover the joint lining elements.As a result, the moisture can not penetrate inside.

Installing first siding panel and correct engagement of the lock profile

first step. Insert the first cladding panel in the corner profile and lock connection starter strip.

Important!Between the first element of the cladding and the lower part of the angular profile of the castle leave 6 mm expansion gap.

second step. Attach the panel to the crate.

is important to keep the size of the indentation process.If the lining is held in warm weather, we stand a 6-millimeter indent if cold - increasing the gap to 9 mm.When the trimming margins panels can be reduced.

Professional advice on facing siding

To trim panels House passed the most successful, you need to know some subtleties of such work.There is a list of general recommendations for any siding, as well as some tips for panels made of a specific material.

General tips

  1. Clamps trying to drive / Screwing strictly at the center of the factory holes.
  2. Hats fasteners do not press the panels too tight - you need to leave a gap in the case of thermal deformation of the material.
  3. Furnish fasten from left to right and from bottom to top.The panels are arranged horizontally.
