I menards has steel siding on sale this week. It is $20 per square for the
white painted. Now I am new to construction work so I might have a dumb
question. I have 12 ft walls and if a square covers 100 square ft. then how
wide would I be able to go with a square ? Would I just take 100 divided by
12 = 8.33 . As of which I assume is a standard 8ft. ?
So, I would have a 8ft wide by 12ft tall section of my wall covered by 1
Am I correct ?
Now ask me about tool and diemaking or machining and I can answer your
question but custruction work , I am lost :-)
Do I have to run another vapor barrier between this inside steel siding wall
and the insulation ? I already have a plastic sheeting vapor barrier between
the outside tin (pole building) and the insulation.
If you are talking about individual sheets, panels, boards, 100 sq ft
does not mean a "square". It covers that much area if you place it end
to end for however long or one on top of the other straight up the
You start at one corner and run a strip to the next corner, then
another strip on top of that. After you use the "square" you will have
covered 100 sq ft if you measure it out.
Kinda hard to explain but just look at any house with siding on it to
get the idea.
