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
