There are no special tools required. Everlast siding is less than half the weight of fiber cement and produces no harmful dust when cut. Everlast Lap Siding’s EZStack joinery ensures a speedy and level installation and planks install left to right or vice versa. And one-piece Everlast Board & Batten, with an integral batten, speeds installation. Everlast installs with virtually any pocketed trim package and flashing at seams is not required. Plus, there’s no caulking or painting, ever.
