I was concerned with the sides crinkling. Stainless steel screws I assume?

You do have to cut your flashing carefully, but it works. I can't remember the hardware, sorry. It's installer per manufacturer specs...

Corten Panels - Hi Ms. Johnston - LOVE the look! I am using a lot more Corten everyday and always interested in the installation techniques used. Do each of your panels have a built in "drip edge" or is there another pc of flashing between the panels? also, what did you use behind your corten? Thanks so much in advance.

Hi, no there's no drip edge- that kind of custom fab would raise the cost of panels substantially. They're through- fastened over trex battens over black weather barrier. We used a Huber & Suhner product that is waterproof and breathable, but 2 layers of building paper would be fine too as long as it stays protected from direct sunlight. Just be sure whatever membrane you choose is black, because you see it through the gaps in the rain screen.

Thank you so much for the response! I'm not sure what trex battens are, but if I'm understanding correctly, you wouldn't attach the corten panels directly to the wall over the building wrap, but would add some type of hat channel or "stand off" to allow for weather? Have you ever seen it attached directly flat on the surface?

One more question - what gauge have you been using?

Again, thanks so much for the input! I'm trying to bring Corten alive here in Winnipeg and it's a bit of a struggle some days!

Although Virginia suburbs are awash in phony-Colonials, I don't see why not.

If we use clear glass for the garage door make sure we finish off the garage with a picture or two. With the hot water heater we might want to use white glass.
