Can I use plastic instead?

Asked by Kk October 17, 2020

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.

I think I read that weatherside siding is not available in Alaska. Is that true?

Hello, we're sorry for your experience, but these backer strips, at 3" width, are designed to handle the vertical joints between each piece of siding. Also, their particular thickness helps ensure there are no issues with installing the siding on top. Thank you for your feedback. gaf
