Rainscreen Siding

Rainscreen Siding

A Rainscreen siding system refers to the style of installation and fastening of the siding material to the structure. Rainscreen siding systems have an air gap between the siding material and the structure itself. This air gap is typically in the range of 3/4" and offers numerous benefits including thermal insulation and moisture stability of the siding boards - which is particularly important when using high density hardwoods such as Ipe, Batu and Cumaru. In modern rainscreen siding systems attached with clips, there is an additional air gap between the actual siding boards themselves; the gap is very small typically around 1/16" - and it is completely invisible when looking at the finished rainscreen system after installation.
