Shure-Strāt®

The way vinyl siding is attached to your home is the same today as it was back in the late 1950’s. The siding panels have improved greatly but the nailing hem hasn’t changed much in almost 50 years. According to the Vinyl Siding Institute’s installation instructions, every nail must be installed exactly in the center of the nailing hem nail hole. If you are too far to the right or left, it can interfere with the expansion and contraction of the siding, and you will see warping, waving walls. Each nail also must be installed straight into the wall, not pointed upward or downward. And to make matters even harder, each nail must be installed leaving the siding 1/32” away from the wall. This must be done approximately 2,500 times on an average siding job. If it’s not done perfectly all 2,500 times, you could see wavy, warping walls.

Our new attaching strip is designed to stop the expansion and contraction problems when vinyl siding is nailed or attached incorrectly. Our buttons are evenly spaced in 4” increments. You no longer have to worry that a nail was placed too far to one side of the nailing slot, or angled too high or low. By fastening the siding through the buttons, each fastener is now in the correct position. The buttons also prevent the nail from being installed pointing upward or downward. Now the nailing strip is fastened to the wall and allows the siding to expand or contract freely.
