Vertical exterior trim on outside corners on homes with exterior rigid foam

Martin Holladay | Posted in General Questions on

For an article on installing exterior corner boards on homes with exterior rigid foam, I’m soliciting photos or architectural details showing wide furring strips or other techniques to make sure that there is solid backing to allow the attachment of corner boards or siding at outside corners.

You can post your images here, or email them to me:

    Here is a corner that shows 3/4" OSB about eight inches wide all the way up the corner. Hope this works.

    This is a 24" deep inside corner under the front porch. We used a 24" sheet there instead of cutting two smaller strips.
