External Corner Options
Aluminium Corner Soaker
An aluminium corner soaker can be used to create a clean modern finish to your design. With a quick etch, it is ready to paint. At a distance, looks like a mitred corner finish but with better weather tightness.
Cover your corners with fibre cement strips to create a solid contrast with the weatherboards and highlight the verticals and corners. Use 15mm thick fibre cement sheet, and cut to suit on site for your selected cover width.
Aluminium Back Soaker at Joints
Weatherproof joints with a hidden Aluminium Back Soaker, with sealant applied between ends of the boards. Leave sealant proud and allow it to completely cure before trimming off.
Joints shall be positioned between studs, min. 100mm away from timber stud.
Stagger joints at a min. 600mm from joints in the adjacent board.
Shera Weatherboards are face fixed through the cavity battens and wall underlay, into the framing at max. 600mm centres with Stainless Steel Jolt Head Nails.
Always ensure the correct nail length is selected to ensure min. framing penetration is achieved.
Always pre-drill nail holes to suit diameter of selected nail size and hand nail.
