As a siding installer: Over the sidingWhich way do you prefer it? Most houses around here are done with the corner board nailed right over the siding. But most the siding jobs I've done had the corner board nailed to the sheathing with siding butted up to it.
I was wondering if people only do that around here, putting the corner board over the siding, or if people do that everywhere. It kind of sounds like it's mostly around here people do it.Easy job = over the siding. Cut lengths to within 3 1/4", close enough. Slap corner corner board over ends. Open beer, return to HO weekend.
I've never seen that on any house. Are the window/door casings done the same way?
here trim goes up, and siding butted to it (lap) and for horizontal it is over the siding and caulked.. As far as caulking goes.. a good sider can get it within 1/8"-3/16" (on lap) and caulking isn't much of an issue, and doesn't make it look bad at all. It is the HACKS that put the lap siding out 1/2" or more.. then it is all up to the painters to make up for ****ty craftsmanship.
how about lap that is "lapped" right up against the window.. so it goes lap siding then window.. no trim at all!There are people everywhere who install corner boards (and even window & door trim) over the siding. I don't believe it is ever correct- it's mostly done for ease and speed, never for quality.
Atleast put your house wrap on right side up...it's a point of pride...
Someone didn't take enough pride to to even put on tyvek neatly...granted it doesn't make any difference...but that's called attention to detail.
