T1-11 Wood Siding Repair ?

Hi,

Re T1-11 wood house siding:

a. Are their different "quality" levels, or is the stuff HD sells pretty much it ? 5/8 thick the standard ?

b. For areas that are damaged, and need replacement:
Is it practical, or ever done, where a narrow, perhaps a foot wide, strip is replaced by ripping from a new panel, or is it always that a complete 4x8 foot section is always used for any type of replacemnent or repair ?

Thanks,
Bob

Bob: If a repair is needed, usually an entire piece is installed. I have made repairs, but what a bear! The cut has to be made along side one of the grooves, and accurate. Then you have to install new blocking to give the repair a place to land.
Most all the T1-11 and RB&B are 5/8" thick, and what is carried by the big boxes and lumber yards is pretty much what there is. You will be staining or painting it anyway, so small imperfections won't show up too badly.

Both Lowes and Home Depot also sell 3/8" thick T-111. It is ok for sheds and such but you don't want to mix it with the thicker 5/8"

I just installed a full basement of the 3/8", but in a bead board pattern. I noted on the back of each sheet there was an inking stating "not for exterior use". Not sure if that is what you are talking about or not, just thought I'd throw it out to be aware.

The 3/8" T-111 is rated for exterior but 16" on center is required.

I have the 3/8" bead board panels on a porch ceiling but don't remember if it said interior use or not - but then it is on a ceiling.
