I know was just joking around here, there is more then one way we do this, and that depends on the siding company, sometime we stub out with nipple and cap, after siding is in place hose bib gets installed.

Sometime we block it out leaving block loose at siding, bib gets screwed to blockl after siding is done.

Sometime we drill it out if the siders are a step ahead of us.

Sometimes we will remove the bib when asked to by the siders.

We don't ask the sider's to drill nothing but the hole the bib will pass through at 1-3/8".
Siders are not allowed to remove and reinstall hose bibs here.

I hope I get a passing grade, I don't need a F

Communications is the key.

Re: Sill Cocks And Siding


I drill a hole in the side of the house and mark hose bib with an arrow.
When I come back to trim out the house I then install the hose bib.
Some guys just side right over it and keep going, I then drill the siding and screw the hose bib tight and buckle the siding then get the builder and ask if he wants me to leave it this way since I took the time to lay it out for the idiots.
The last builder that I went around with over this was pi$$ed at me until I pulled back the siding and showed him it was laid out.
He then had the siding guy come out and install a block with J channel.

For brick, I used to use a piece of 1-1/2" ABS pipe with the hose faucet through it. Then the bricklayer would brick around it. Of course, I would ask the bricklayer what his finished depth would be.

For siding, the house was supposed to be sided before I started the rough-in, so it was a simple matter of drilling a hole and installing the hydrant.

Yeah, take a couple balusters and miter them on 45s. . . 4 pieces and there it is.
