This will reduce to a minimum the waste of materials used. However, based on the fact that the presence of the desired size is not always the case, you can do any of the standard length of panels.

After making a decision as to whether, made meticulous rendering of the area than to finish assembling the foundation and facade of the house surfaces and counted margin of approximately 10% of the splines, is required to calculate the number of auxiliary elements.

Ancillary products include:

On the surface walls of the house temporarily dismantled elements: decorative objects, lights, window frames, visors, sills, and if necessary, in some places, remove the old plaster. Should remain free of foreign parts planar surface.

An important component part of the finish siding is a crate, to which all the elements are fastened directly siding system. In addition to the role of the frame, purlins can serve as a support for additional insulation and promote the equalization curve initially aligned wall plastering.

For these purposes, often use inexpensive cost dry wooden beam (moisture content 13-15%) cross section of 50x30 mm.
