Vinyl Siding Outside Corner Installation

jimlaJuly 18, 2011

I am covering my 10ft 2inch high garden shed in vinyl. The outside corner channels I have are 10 feet long. In order to span the entire height, is there a particular way of joining two corner pieces besides using a butt joint? I noticed on my 25 year old home the corners were joined with pop rivets and an spline apparently. Its a south facing wall and will get hot. The pieces to join would be a 8 foot piece and a 2 foot plus piece.

Thanks

Overlap the upper piece over the lower piece by cutting away 1" of the nailing flange of the top piece. Overlap 3/4", allowing a 1/4" gap between the nailing flanges for expansion.
