This is question made in response to the following post made in pinch stick thread regarding siding butting up tight to rake trim.
SUNTOAD, I’m a framer and I’ve minimal experience in dealing with siding isues. One question: have you ever had and shrinkage or expansion at the joint where your siding and rake trim meet? (have you looked at it a year or 2 later).
I know that with a miter cut, the short end tends to open up in some situations. have you ever have that problem with siding?
I know that on one small job a few years ago I butted the cedar siding tight upto the corner trim. was back there recently and there is about an 1/8″ gap at the joint. really anoyed me. was glad I’d back calked the joint prior to installation
