Tip of the Week: Starter Adapter for Vinyl Siding

 

Our PFT installation expert Jared explains the benefits of using an insulation starter adapter when installing vinyl siding with Fullback.

Installing Fullback and and vinyl siding without a starter adapter creates a void at the bottom of the siding panel near the starter strip. This part of a home is most susceptible to damage from objects like a kid’s baseball or a rock thrown from a lawnmower.

To install a starter adapter, simply snap it onto the starter strip, then install the vinyl with Fullback as you normally would. This completely fills the void behind the siding, making it more solid and adding one extra layer of insulation at the start of the siding job.
