CMU W/ Vinyl Siding


Anyone have a picture or detail drawing of how to attach vinyl siding to a CMU wall?

Re: CMU W/ Vinyl Siding


I would source that information from the siding manufacturer, since they will be the one giving any warranty. The only input I would have is to seal the wall before the application of the siding with a penetrating sealer, and make sure the flashing detail at the bottom of the wall and over windows and doors allows for liquid water to exit the wall.
