What Angle Do You Set Your Saw To Cut Corners On Bevel Cedar Siding?

I think I understand your question now.

To actually calc your angle,we would need your siding bevel degrees and your bevel angle relative to your wall plane (assuming it's a lap siding) and your orientation on your saw (flat side or bevel side down).

Even then,I'd sure have to pull out my trig programs and a case of beer to figure it out.... but I bet one of our better mathmaticians might get by with one six pack.

Honestly,I'd just template it with scraps...trial/error it.

Attached is a bay window finish that ate my lunch. It's not your exact application,but the principals are similar.

Both vertical angles/planes are different.... both framing it and finishing it,quite frankly confused the H out of me.

My brother in law has graduate math degrees,and he did not want to trig it out..... but he did conclude....

Note my mismatched ship/lap lines.... It was a mathmatical impossibility to keep them aligned,shy of remilling down each course of the siding.

I would be interested if there are any simpler answers to your question.

Best and Good luck

There is a link here:
It briefly mention about lap sidings.
I will have to measure and cut the hole a bit bigger. Next, add flashing around it like windows flashing (aluminium here). This flashing goes beneath the siding (instead of the inner channels I mentioned before).
I then add a 1x wood frame around the opening. It will be extended out same or pass the siding's largest thinness so that I can mount the shutter on it.
I then caulk beneath and nails and caulk the nails the flashing into the wood flanges (on the sides)

    I mean new car has been painted in this colors. And how does this change from regular colors?

    • Metallic paint has small metal flakes mixed in with the paint, that shimmers slightly and shows the curves of the car better than flat paint. The down sides are that it had to be lacquered over to get the deep glossy fin …paint, which is basically just like normal metallic paint but the flakes of (normally aluminium) are a lot bigger and provide an expensive and very different finish.

  • Avatar Travis T Cost to replace aluminium siding with wood clapboard?
    Aug 06, 2006 by Travis T | Posted in Maintenance & Repairs

    The house we just bought is great. But just one downside. The house is covered in ugly aluminum siding. My wife and I are considering replacing the siding with a more traditional wood clapboard. We live at the edge o …ctive and conform to the rest of the neighborhood.

    The house is a small 2-story colonial. About 1300 square feet. Anyone know what kind of cost we are looking at? I'm just looking for a ballpark figure...

    • Your costs are gonna be determined by the product you use.red ceder clapboards are gonna be the most exspensive,but are the best looking and most wear resistant.remember to use stainless steel nails with any red ceder pr …siding.it comes in different colors and textures and may be the best choice for you.in my experience vinyl runs about $40.00 a square to put up.go with a quality product and you will be happier in the long run.good luck.

    • The sun's heat.white is bad conductor of heat.the tyres emit strong heat on landing.silver colour too saves from getting burnt from high temperatures generated.it absorbs the high temp.you may search google,msn,yahoo.visit boeing and airbus websites.
