a certain amount of play in there that means I need about a quarter of an inch at either end at the same time you will notice that these nails here are installed so that they are not tight this allows for by piece of siding to be able to slide backwards and forwards with the expansion and the contraction if I have a long wall that's longer than 12 feet I'm going to have
to make a joint so I'm going to make a joint here where I'm going to leave one inch of material between the flange of one and the flange of the other because in theory this piece here could actually come across like that and the piece over there could come the other way and I need to have some...
