Installing Shingle Panels

Preparation
Shingle Panel Installation – Clean surfaces thoroughly prior to installation.
Prepare surfaces using the methods recommended by the manufacturer for achieving the best result for the substrate under the project conditions.

Determine prior to framing layout which corner treatment is to be utilized. Panels require a nailable area 5-1/4 inches (133 mm) of outside corners and 3-1/2 inches (89 mm) of inside corners.
After framing is completed, install building paper horizontally, shingle style, beginning at bottom of wall with 3 inches (76 mm) overlaps.
Corner boards, trim and molding:
Shall be extended a minimum 1 inch (25.4 mm) from sheathing to allow for 7/8 inch (22 mm) depth of applied Shakertown Craftsman shingle panels.
