Wolf Home Products was founded in 1843 as a single store selling dry goods and lumber on the banks of Pennsylvania's Susquehanna River. During the first half of the 1900s, the company expanded into a mid-Atlantic wholesale and retail lumber operation with 30 locations.
By the early 2000s, Wolf transitioned its successful lumber operation into a sourcing organization, offering kitchen, bath, and building products exclusively to independent building materials dealers.
Wolf Home Products continued its growth with the introduction of Wolf-branded product lines in 2010. Today, the company is committed to product and geographic expansion, servicing 3,500+ dealers nationally and in Canada.

          PART 3EXECUTION
 
          3.1EXAMINATION
 
          A.Do not begin installation until substrates have been properly constructed and prepared.
 
          B.Verify that substrate and adjacent materials are dry and ready to receive vapor retarder.
 
          C.For decking and porch flooring installations, ensure surfaces are suitable for installation of decking and that adequate structural support has been provided.
 
          D.If substrate preparation is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect in writing of unsatisfactory preparation before proceeding.
 
          3.2PREPARATION
 
          A.Clean surfaces thoroughly prior to installation.

          3.3INSTALLATION
 
          A.Install in accordance with manufacturer's instructions, approved submittals, and in proper relationship with adjacent construction.
 
          B.Cutting: Use saw capable of miter cuts with a fine-toothed carbide tipped finish trim blade with tooth count as recommended by manufacturer.
 
          C.Follow manufacturer's recommendations for fastener placement and spacing.
 
          D.Decking and Porch Flooring:
          1.Install a 1/4 inch (6 mm) bead of adhesive on each joist to minimize expansion and contraction.
          2.Install with embossed or grain side up. Install rim boards with embossed or grain side out.

          4.Countersink fasteners. Provide necessary clearance when installing the next board.
          5.Cut final boards as required and install as soon as possible after cutting.
          6.Expansion and Contraction: Refer to manufacturers board spacing chart based on temperature at the time of installation.
          7.Install decking with ends staggered over firm bearing. On sloped surfaces, lay decking with tongue upward.
          8.Secure with manufacturer's recommended fastener system.
          9.Install end butts and miters tight.
 
          E.Railings:
          1.Install in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.

          3.Install stair wood posts a minimum of 48 inches (1219 mm) above the tread and check for level and plumb.
 
          F.Siding:
          1.Install the manufacturer's siding starter strip straight and level line, nailing every 8 to 12 inches (203 to 305 mm) fastening to wall studs as often as possible.
