James Hardie Best Practices
12 Bravo Construction Companies LLC employs a field operations manager and a project manager that will insure proper installation. If a wind storm certificate is required we will order all necessary engineering inspections. During tear off we look for any damaged or rotten studs. In most cases we are able to fix minor issues at no additional cost. We will ensure that the maximum allowable spacing between studs is 24″ on center.
Once we complete this process we will install the recommended 7/16″ OSB. This helps reduce waving in the siding once installed. Then we will install the moisture barrier, tape the windows, and put in all recommended flashing. Then the siding goes up. Throughout this process an engineer will stop by on occasions and take the measurements and photos he requires to submit your WPI-8 for the certificate.
When we get the green light from the engineer we will start painting. We will always prime the hardie then paint. This help prevent shadows due to the siding soaking up the paint.
