Exterior Cladding Installation Guide for SIPS

ToniaOlson | Posted in Building Code Questions on

We are looking for exterior finishes that have installation guidance for use on SIP panels. We have run into a building official who is being particularly critical and wants reports, etc. to support exterior finish use with SIP panels. Is anyone aware of any manufacturers of exterior finish that provide this detail?
Thank you!

    I would use this for detail info:

    Also try the SIPA website for more details.

    You can install siding, stucco, etc on SIP walls, just have to detail correctly and allow a path for any water to drain/dry behind the cladding. Tape all joints and penetrations. SIGA tape works well with OSB/SIPS
