Recessed corner boards?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Is there a way to recess corner boards (similar to the recessing doors and windows to the sheathing layer) like you would do for James Hardie siding or similar?

 

Thanks,

Tom E.

No, not automatically but it has been Requested as a Change I believe.

I set my Corner Boards at 1/4" thick. Looks closer to normal,not that much trouble.

 

   Have a great week end, Ken

Is there a manual way?

Thanks Ken. I'll have to do this as a workaround - it's inaccurate in a plan view still though so I was wondering if there was a more correct way.

HardiePlank is 5/16" thick and laid up it's closer to 3/4" at max, so that's how I've set it in the wall build.

 

We use cornerboard at 5/4 thickness (1") and since Chief places cornerboards ATOP the siding, I specify the CBs at 1/4".

 

If you prefer a "flush" look then go with 1/16" over whatever you've set for siding, to avoid z-fighting.

 

We won't do "flush" because it won't permit well-caulked joints where claps resolve into trim.

If you want it to show correctly in plan view use a p-solid with solid fill.

Thanks Gene,   That was just a quick demo but I knew something seemed a bit off.  See Revised.
