Before you can cover a wall with siding, you need to trim the edges—beginning with the long vertical pieces, like inside and outside corners. For thick cladding, you can install a 2x2 and then rip down an exterior corner to fit over it.
On the demo house, we used 5/4-inch stock on the inside corners, and
With the tall verticals in place, the long horizontals can slip between: a deck fascia and skirt boards for the siding. The skirt boards have a bump out tab at the top to bump out the bottom course of siding.
Door trim features a built-up head casing
With trim installed below the door, side casings can sit on top and frame the opening. The side casings also have a stealth pocket for siding.
He matches the reveal at the top of the jamb with the reveal he formed at the bottom. A one-piece head casing is installed on top. Screw holes are filled with matching plugs.
Post wrap comes extra-wide with three hinge-joints
The final piece of the puzzle is wrapping the post. The VERSATEX system is a single hinged piece of trim.
After spreading adhesive in each hinge and the post is wrapped, and the wrap is snapped into place. A base also wraps and snaps in place. Trim kits are included for the top, base, and bottom.
