    Q:Can I use plastic instead?

    Answer This Question

    A:  If you do, make sure it is specifically a UV resistant plastic. The Sun will shine through the gaps and deteriorate it. Even if you have a vapor barrier on the exterior wall of the house you still want to put backer strips in so that the water does not go to the top edges of the siding below and cause stains running down your siding. Also, if you are using the cementious siding of the same brand, you should buy a carbide tipped bit to pre drill the holes for nails. It cracks very easily when trying to drive nails.

    A:  While there should be no compatibility issues etc., from a material standpoint, we recommend WeatherSider Backer Strips to be used with WeatherSide Fiber-Cement siding shingles. Thank you for your question.

        Q:Not sure how these things work. Do they go toward the top or the bottom of the shingle? How do they adhere or are they nailed in with the shingle? Thanks in advance for any help!

        A:  after buying these for my contractor to use since they are recomended by the manufactuer, its obvious that these are not needed. this is just tar paper and if you use house wrap, you will be fine. my contractor said he would use them just because i bought them, but that its just added insurance and the house wrap is of better quality. dont waste your money.

                A:  Backer strip required on each shingle that butts to another shingle and should overlap the shingle below.
