Hello I am hoping to attach carsiding to the ceiling of a patio cover I built. Is it poosible to attach the carsiding directly to the truss bottom chord

Thanks

You do not state where you live, and extremes of weather do make a difference in doing this... individual trusses will move at varying rates, and in differing amounts, thereby sometimes buckling whatever is directly mounted to them.

I've attached to trusses many times without issue. Of coarse the NW Coast doesn't see huge seasonal changes so I don't know about anywhere else.

I've always called it V-groove T&G. If you do go with it stick to the single exposure, the double is just to wide and would be more prone splits and checks.

Never used the pine out West, not with all of them big Red Cedar Trees in the hood.

Interestingly enough, some railway companies starting installing stamped steel sheets with the same look on their cars in the 1960's. And today, it can be purchased as either wood (it's really just T&G), metal, or vinyl.
