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.
