Make your wood siding last 100 years! Verticle Siding, Drainage Plane, and Tar Paper house wrap

Here are a few of the tools and materials we used on this build that I recommend in each category, most with affiliate links:

1. Caulk
PL Window, siding and door sealant.


This stuff is hard to deal with.  You have to be very careful when you apply it.  But is lasts a super long time!  Mineral spirits clean up.
I also like Kelly Moore Elastomeric Caulk.  It is much easier to work with and lasts a long time. Sorry no link for that one.

2. Framing and Siding Nailers

Hitachi Framing Nailer.



My model is a little older than this one.  But the hitachi nailer has been the industry standard for years.  They sell a siding attachment to the framing head.  I Don't use a separate siding nailer.  Also we use trim screws on the ends of our window and door trim to minimize wood cracking.


How to install siding and drainage plane.  This is a vertical siding set up.


everyone Mike Stokes here with lush


planet design/build and today I want to


make a video about drainage plane and


how to put vertical wood siding on your


building I want to start off today by


just talking about the drainage plane


most people don't realize that the


siding is not what protects the house


from loss it's actually the drainage


plane behind it so this is tar paper the


felt tar paper and what we've done is we


used two layers of  pounds of L and


the reason that we'll use to penetrate


through the drainage plane it makes a


potential place where you can leave with


a great thing about the felt paper is


that it kind of seals around them that


way better than a tie back or another


type of fabrics type type of drainage


house wrap so that's why our preferred


method is to use this tar paper and the


other thing I'd like to say about the


drainage plane is that way to think


about it when you're sealing your house


from the weather is you think about this


plane right here as the surface that


you're sealing like a boat so you can't


seal it completely like a boat the tar


paper works really great because when it


gets wet it swells and it lets it stops


the water from going in and then when it


dries out it'll let the moist air go out


of the house so that's why you couldn't


wrap the house in plastic because it


would mold from the inside out


but while you have this drainage plane


when you're building if you think about


sealing this up and you think about how


water works so most people think about


water as just going downwards so water


will go down but it also has capillary


action so it'll stick to itself for


example let's say you got a water


droplet here and it'll go horizontally


and then if it's squeezed between two


things and a bunch of water backs up


behind it it'll actually push up so you


always want to think about water when


you're creating your drainage plane and


again remember that the


this is what's keeping the house


protected this is not keeping the house


protected the main function of the


siding is to make your house was


beautiful and to protect the drainage


plan behind it so if you notice here


we've got this little box where we're


going to have an exterior outlet and


we've cocked around the top and the


sides and we put this little fern strip


on here so why did we do that we did


that because when the water comes down


the drainage plane if we just left this


open then the water would hit that and


then go behind it so every window every


opening that we have on the house


we've done the same thing we don't do


the bottom because like water is going


to push down it's going to drain out so


if any water half is again there we want


to let it go out so I think that's


enough about the drainage plane itself


the next thing I want to bring your


attention to is this design that we've


created for a vertical siding so if you


look over here you'll see that this is a


ship lap siding now ship black siding is


normally supposed to be horizontal


horizontal so the water will shed off of


it but for this design we the client


really like the vertical look and and I


really like the vertical look - it's a


beautiful look so what we did was we


took these tee  burning strips and we


lined them up on all of the studs and


nailed them off on the studs and they're


flipped backwards so behind here you can


see if you get close up that there's the


little grooves that you'll see in a tee


 signing so the water when it comes


down will hit this plane and then can


travel sideways go through the hole and


keep going it's not a perfect system but


for as opposed to if we just put this


vertical siding on this drainage plane


then what would happen is is the water


would just get compressed in there and


start just basically start rotting it


from the back out so now when water gets


behind it because water always gets


behind your siding especially when
