Re: Siding Master


I've seen it a few times. my opinion is that it is'nt revolutionary enough to warrant a change. if you use a high quality panel and have a good installer,this is just more confusion. seems as though they are using a 25' alside panel.

Re: Siding Master


your seamless ran a straighter wall than the SD?
Alside has a 25' panel with solid pvc reinforcement that gives a really straight wall.

0.50 panel with a smooth finish. it was a true .050.
A WG .046 panel is really .040 with striations totaling .046. IOW the backboone is only .040, they measure the thickness at the highest average point. So the seamless was 20% thicker. It ran really straight.

This SM system has to be shimmed which to me is a PIA.

Thanks for sharing buddy.

Re: Siding Master


Garbage. Never used it but doing the way that has worked since the beginning of siding, you would be done already.

Maybe they used it because they left their tool belts at home?

Re: Siding Master


What a lame video. Two guys installing siding on a square wall, no inside corners, slopes or any tricky areas. A beginner could do that.

I question the details. In my experience, the flashing, the trim and all the details that really give a siding job integrity are the time consuming areas.

Once you get to the actual siding installation, that's the no brainer area.

Sorry....... just a sales gimmick in my opinion

Re: Siding Master


I think it has an application over masonary where you have to fir out anyway. There is some benefit to having a small air space between sidings buit I have repeatedly ripped 35+ yo aluminum jobs and found no rot anywhere.

It's just another sales gimmick like the permastraight used in the 29XL.

Not to mention that the RB they're using is next to useless due to the fact that there's no air space on the back side. RB's need air space to function properly.

Re: Siding Master


Just because you invent something and patent it, doesn't mean it's a good idea or practical for that matter. There may be limited situations where this product would be feasible, such as over a smooth block wall, but you still have to deal with trim accessories, etc. I'd just as soon fir it, sheath it, paper it and move forward.

Re: Siding Master


A good installer can be siding over a crooked wall and keep it straight and smooth. Using something like the siding master would not be necessary.

If you want a non-biased review of the system by a "true craftsman" who has actually used the system read the link below.
So,who is this mysterious "true craftsman".........Lady Contractor?.

I have my opinion,you have a product to sell.

Re: Siding Master


Obviously, with this great new system, you don't need to be a true craftsman to install that vinyl siding stuff.

That is usually the point of these things. Less labor=cheaper labor=more profits.
