Longboard’s tongue & groove soffit applications can be installed parallel or perpendicular to the buildings overhang and can also be installed onto furring strips or other framing systems where required. This system requires additional component pieces at terminations and penetrations to allow for expansion and contraction.
Longboard siding is approximately double the cost of a traditional wood siding, such as cedar. However, the longevity of Longboard aluminum siding far outweighs that of traditional wood. Cedar or other wood siding products require regular maintenance roughly every five to seven years which comes at an expense.
