The existing substrate was a metal siding system attached to metal studs. Rather than removing the metal siding prior to installation, AL-13 was able to be installed over the existing siding. 3” wide 20 gauge metal strapping was attached over the siding and into the studs at 24” spacing. AL-13 was then attached to the metal strapping.
This installation technique eliminated the demo portion of the project saving the owner both time and money. The result was a beautiful accent wall that has become the focal point of the building.
