The right accessories provide a supplemental rain screen to a home’s water-resistive barrier.
Vinyl siding is designed to allow the material underneath it to breathe, which in turn creates a healthier living environment. When properly installed; using the right vinyl accessories provides additional rain screening, reducing the amount of water that reaches the underlying water-resistive barrier and can create curb appeal.
