Soffit Installation Process

Acclimatize Paneling Before Installing

In a dry covered storage area, allow air to circulate freely around and through the cedar for 3 to 5 days.

Prime Before Installing (exterior use only)

Prime coat all surfaces with a good quality primer to protect the wood from water penetration and staining.

Prepare Exterior Walls (exterior use only)

Install Building paper and seal doors, windows and other joints. If applying cedar paneling over rigid foam sheathing, refer to your distributor for special instructions.

Select The Correct Nails

Use hot dipped galvanized aluminum nails or stainless steel that are corrosion resistant. For best results use “split less” nails with thin shanks and blunt points. Recommended nail specifications:

Paneling Thickness Nail Length & Type
Smooth Shank Ring or Spiral Shank
1/2" – 5/8" 2 1/4" 7d 2" 6d
3/4" 2 1/2" 8d 2 1/4" 7d

Install Tongue and Groove Paneling

Tongue and Groove Paneling can be installed horizontally or vertically. In horizontal applications, start at the bottom with the groove edges facing downwards. In vertical applications, start at one corner with grooved edge toward the adjacent wall. Use a plumbline or level to ensure the first board is straight. Position and nail to horizontal blocking lines or furring strips installed between studs.

Caulk Joints To Prevent Moisture Damage (exterior use only)

Thoroughly caulk all joints, including butt joints and where paneling contacts openings and trim. Use only non-hardening caulks such as polyurethane, polysulphide, or latex-silicone.

Pure silicon caulks are not recommended.

Finish and Maintenance of Cedar Paneling.

Apply desired finish. Properly applied cedar paneling is maintenance-free for ears.
