Screwless aluminum siding?

9 posts in this topic

I hear this mentioned on some new fish houses and it looks nice. How is it attached and where can it be purchased from?

3-M VHB tape, it's a double sided tape that has been used in the trucking world for a while. It comes 1"x36 yards long, about $41 a roll. I will be using it on my new house.

So I assume its placed on the outside of all the wood studs and then between sheets of aluminum at the seams? Any local suppliers carry it?

Just googled it. Did you mean VHB tape?

Ken,

Did you start building your house yet? It sounds like it is going to be great...

Not sure when you are going to be making it up to Gogebic, just keep me posted. I am going to be buying a new Canvas Craft insulated with the tub and seat and was wondering maybe if you could pick it up for me when you make a trip. I was sent a estimate on shipping and it would be almost $100.

Yes It VHB tape. If you go on their web site there are a number of places. Make sure you look for places that sell part cases. I paid $41 a roll.

We will coming in Janary to LG. I can and will bring it then if thats not to late. We talked not going to lake of the woods this year and coming out there. You have my email and phone #, let me know. About 3 weeks field work, will turn to high gear until Thanksgiving. The fish house has been in slow mod as of late, a 6" grinder got away from me and cut 2 tendons and nicked 2 more. I am starting to get all movement back, but no strength yet, slow going. Let me know.

Not sold on anything with tape or glue in MN with the rough roads on the lake.

I'm guessing it might hold up for awhile... but when it doesn't then what?

Rip the whole shack apart? I'm a firm believer in good screws!

I am in the planning stages of building an 8'x18' tandem. I would like to hear more for sources of smooth trailer siding. Willing to pay to do it right just would like to know where you guys got good quality! How about tape, and just a few screws for insurance?

49" wide (for overlap) aluminum sheets in either white or black are available at Jay Soderbloom's in Cromwell. That's where I got mine. Looks slick!

Glue or tape is the only way to go. The stuff they can do with chemicals these days is rediculous! The aluminum will tear before the glue or tape will fail, and it will never break down... not before the rest of your house does anyway.

    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
