Sealing Vertical Edges of T1-11 Siding: How ?
Hate to be a pest on this, but there is so much expertise on
this group, that I thought I'd ask again, hoping someone new might have any experience with this. I have been doing extensive lookups myself, honest, but just can't come up with any answers.
With T1-11 wood siding, I understand pretty much how the horizontal edges are sealed with Z-flashing, and how these edges should alo be primed, and spaced about 1/4" above the flashing to prevent any wicking into the end grain via capillary action.
But, it's the vertical edges where they abut the neighboring panels that I can't understand how they are sealed.
Are they just primed with some sealer, or is their a special type of flashing, or are they caulked (before or after being put up ?), or... ?
What is normally, or should be done, for these vertical edges ?
Any information would be most appreciated.
BTW: are oil based sealer and primers O.K., or should one use only a latex type ?
