Car Siding Installation


I am going to be installing car siding in a new 3 season room. Can I install it directly on the studs, or does code usually require drywall first?

Re: Car Siding Installation


As we don't know where you are, we don't know your local/state/province/national codes.

A call to your local city's planning and development office should clear up the code question.

Maybe/maybe not... but...

it might be a good idea to have the drywall under it and fire-taped.

Re: Car Siding Installation


I have to admit that in forty odd years of working construction, I have never heard that term either. Must be a Northern thing.

Is it called "car siding" because the "V" groove resembles the buckling resistance breaking (bending) of the flat metal panels used on railroad passenger cars?

That would be car siding!
It has merely been renamed
by the bean counters who run
box stores and want to dumb
everything down to their own
and the DIY level.

Re: Car Siding Installation


You may also notice that they
sell lumber from the "white wood" tree.
They have invented their own
lumber grading terminology
that has no relation to C, D & better,....
or any industry standard.
That doen't make it right.

Re: Car Siding Installation


It is kind of like where they got the name for Barge boards.

Same here in NH, have installed many feet of V groove,
never heard the term "car siding", until I read about it a while back on here.

With all due respect Neo, our local yards have also been using this term for 20+ years that I know of, long before the box stores hit town

Compare the two references.

The trend to cater to the DIYs
began more than twenty years ago.

Re: Car Siding Installation


Found this old thread over at JLC, after reading this, it seems like V-groove and car siding are possibly two different things.

Some interesting reading.
