Gotcha. I can't help you out with horizontally installed panels. Industry practice is to cut the panels in the field around window framed openings. The larger openings for that window of walls would be pretty easy to figure out. Just take the height of your opening and divide by the width of your panel. That will give you your count. Use AutoCAD to figure your length.

Are you installing your self?

Yes we are. Me, hubby, and FIL. Hubby and FIL did the garage vertical 5 years ago but only a door to work around. It super easy! But this is significantly diff and more holes!

Is it more common to just order all 18 foot pieces (or 16 or 20 etc) and just make that work? Or do they usually figure out best panel sizes to have least waste?

Thanks

Interesting choice of siding material and orientation for a home.

Have you asked the supplier if they will do the take off for you?

We try to supply material to have the least amount of end laps. That company should do the take off for you. If not, shop around there are companies that will. One that comes to mind is Metal Sales. I dont know where you are located geographically or I'd suggest someone that would. This is a very competitive industry and the panel profile you like is widely produced so I'd find someone out there that wants to earn your business and go that direction.

Metal sales is also in anchorage. AEP span makes specialty products in Anchorage just for Alaska. So both companies are available to me.

Metal sales is purchased through Spenard Builders here in town, (our garage metal was purchased through them)

AEP/ASC is purchased through Uresco, and they have been so great with me keeping my house in my budget. My uncle knows the Owner so I get really good deals and a lot of help. They can get allll of my diff siding materials so I would like to stik with them.

So you think I should call AEPspan in anchorage and see if they will figure this out? Because I would LOVE that!!!

No questions about it! Send them the drawings that you have sent me. That way they can take off the panel counts and lengths, fastener count, trim sections and sealant.

I really appreciate you telling me this. I NEVER would have thought about that! I am always trying to do everything myself and this scale...im just exhausted! Hopefully someone else can get this figured!

I am waiting for Uresco to call me back to help me figure this out and who to call next.

here...this is more fun to look at then CAD 2D lines. :-)

I’d certainly try for a seamless installation and it looks like you can get away with it on most of it.

How wide is that eave wall on your last rendering you just posted?

I would like as seamless as possible and I can get nu wave in 40 foot lengths! But there is no way we can hang that length :-( I have a 37'-11" run on back of house between plum and windows it runs left to right and hits that cedar...it's 37-11". Most of it gets interrupted by windows or material change. On the front at tallest roof line, all the way across is a 36' run. We will have a lift but I am going to have to break up sheets for our sake. The smaller elevations are about 27'-0" and so 28' would work but again, we can't handle that. :-(

Well thatís a shame. Your 28í panels are about 84lbs. 114lbs on the 38ís.

Not sure what type of lift you have available but if rigged right Iíd think it would be doable but then again Iím not there, pretty easy for me to say from here.

Either way be careful, those panels are giant razor blades and the wind is not your friend.

Post some pictures when you get going on this. We always like pictures.

Well it will be the heavier duty style for rough terrain. We got one for roof fascia etc that went up 30 feet. With a horizontal layout, I get the look I want and it allows us to start down on the ground with all low materials and once we hit a height we an no longer work, we will get the lift :-)

Lucky for us, here in the interior aka fairbanks, we dont' get hardly any crazy wind! :-) I suspect we will all be wearing gloves for sure!

That being said, what would be the maximum length we should try and work with?

THANKS!!! I will for sure post pics! I am super excited about this all getting done. I designed everything inside out and my motivation to do any work on this house is to see my visions come to life :-) The finish prodcut. Hubby isn't like that. He groans and just wants stuff done. Me? I want it to function properly, look great, and be done correctly! He wants that as well, but doesn't want to be the one to figure it out. Good thing he married a perfectionist with a passion for design because I step up an do those parts. I have all areas figured out..water drainage off house and every detail around doors windows.. etc etc.. just need this final piece of the puzzle done.

Even if there were an online program I could use... I would do it myself! I haven't heard back from them yet :-( dang
