When putting board n' baton siding on a building, and the boards aren't long
enough to go from top to bottom, what is the proper way to "join" the
boards. Butt joints would be the easiest but I think that be a place for
rot to start. Using rough pine with no preservatives btw.
Do you overlap a couple of inches? How do you finish the corners where the
gap would be?
Do you cut a 45 on each board so the overlap doesn't stick out an inch?
This would take more time but would leave a cleaner looking building.
Should shed the water and keep it from rotting too.... I think.
What would you do?
Any help would be appreciated.
