          PART 3EXECUTION
 
          3.1EXAMINATION
 
          A.Do not begin installation until substrates have been properly prepared.
 
          B.If substrate preparation is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect of unsatisfactory preparation before proceeding.
 
          3.2PREPARATION
 
          A.Clean surfaces thoroughly prior to installation.
 
          B.Prepare surfaces using the methods recommended by the manufacturer for achieving the best result for the substrate under the project conditions.
 
          3.3INSTALLATION
 
          A.Install in accordance with manufacturer's instructions and as follows.
          1.Cutting:
          a.Cut using standard woodworking saws. Conventional carbide-tipped blades designed for cutting wood are preferred. Avoid using fine-tooth metal-cutting blades.
          b.Rough-cut edges are typically caused by excessive friction, poor board support, or worn or improper tooling.
          2.Drilling:
          a.Drill using standard woodworking drill bits. Do not use drill bits made for rigid PVC.
          b.Avoid frictional heat build-up.
          c.Remove shavings periodically from a drill hole as necessary.
          3.Milling and Moulding:
          a.Milled or mould using standard milling or moulding machines found in millwork shops.
          b.Rake angle 20 to 30 degrees. 25 degrees is recommended.
          c.Cutting speed to be optimized with the number of knives and feed rate.
          4.Routing:
          a.Route with virtually any piece of equipment used to rout wood.
 
          B.Expansion and Contraction: Allow for expansion and contraction with changes in temperature. Proper fastening along the entire length is required to minimize expansion and contraction/
          1.Allow 3/16 inch space per 18-foot run of trim for expansion and contraction.
          2.Bond joints between pieces of simulated wood trim to eliminate separation.
          3.Allow expansion and contraction space at the ends of long runs.
 
          C.Mechanical Fastening:
          1.Use 12 gauge stainless steel fasteners designed for wood trim and siding. Fastener should have sufficient flexural and tensile strength to resist bending.
          2.Use fasteners with thin shanks, blunt points, and full round heads that are long enough to penetrate the substrate a minimum of 1-1/2 inches.
          3.Do not use staples, small brads and wire nails. Avoid using fine threaded wood screws and ring-shank fasteners.
          4.Use standard nail guns with a pressure setting between 70 psi and 100 psi. The recommended pressure depends on the type of gun, type of nail, ambient temperature, and the substrate. Care should be taken not to overdrive the nail into the material.
          5.Pre-drilling is not typically required unless large fasteners are used or the product is installed during temperatures below 40 degrees F.
          6.Use two fasteners for every framing member for trimboard applications. Sheet and trimboards 8 inches and wider require additional fasteners.
          7.Install fasteners no more than 2 inches from the end of each board.
          8.Avoid fastening trim over hollow or uneven areas. Fasten onto flat, solid substrates.
          9.Sheet and Beadboard 3/8 inch and 1/2 inch thick is not designed to be ripped and used for trim applications. These products must be glued and mechanically fastened to the substrate.
 
          D.Adhesives: Finishing System:
          1.All bonded surfaces must be smooth, clean, and in complete contact with each other for best results.
          2.Adhere simulated wood trim to itself with PVC cement or cellular PVC adhesives to prevent joint separation.
          3.Scarf cut joints are recommended where applicable.
          4.Bonded joints should be secured with fasteners and fastened with two rows on each side of the joint.
          5.When bonding simulated wood trim to other substrates, consult the adhesive manufacturer to determine suitability.
 
          E.Cleaning:
          1.Be sure surface to be painted is clean, dry, and free of dirt, loose or peeling paint, mildew, chalk, grease and any other surface contaminants before paint application.
          2.Finish nail holes with nail hole filler or a UV resistant acrylic caulk.
          3.Use 100 percent acrylic latex or 100 percent acrylic latex with urethane additive paint with a light reflective value (LRV) equal to or greater than 55 units.
          4.Follow the paint manufacturer's application recommendations.
 
          F.Painting: Paint as specified in Section 09 90 00 - Painting and Coating [09 90 00] - Painting and Coating
          1.Be sure surface to be painted is clean, dry, and free of dirt, loose or peeling paint, mildew, chalk, grease and any other surface contaminants before paint application.
          2.Finish nail holes with nail hole filler or a UV resistant acrylic caulk.
          3.Use 100 percent acrylic latex or 100 percent acrylic latex with urethane additive paint with a light reflective value (LRV) equal to or greater than 55 units.
          4.Follow the paint manufacturer's application recommendations.
 
          3.4PROTECTION
 
          A.Protect installed products until completion of project.
 
          B.Touch-up, repair or replace damaged products before Substantial Completion.
