Nailing – Do not nail through overlapping pieces. Use stainless steel, high tensile strength aluminum or hot-dipped galvanized nails with ring or spiral-threaded shanks. Use casing nails to blind nail; siding or box nails to face nail

Preparation – Precondition siding or paneling by storing in covered area 7-10 days prior to installation. Remove end caps and separate layers with wood lath for proper air circulation. This will allow the material to acclimate to existing environment

Finishing – Wood characteristics must be taken into consideration prior to application of finishing material with paint or stain. Consult your local paint supplier for recommendations
