This is a fun job! We are installing HardiePlank siding on this block house, using a rainscreen application and a radiant barrier insulation system.
Before work begins.
The first thing we do is to remove the window sills.Then we install 1x wood strips. This give us an nailing strip an a way to allow air to flow behind the siding.
We then install a foil radiant barrier- google it, its very cool. HardieTrim at the windows and corners.
