we have seen an increased interest in
horizontally applied metal siding panels. This
interest has created an ongoing need for quality
mitered corners fabricated from those same
Solutions Inc., we have developed a method by
which we miter an existing siding panel, fold it
to the desired angle and structurally bond the
cut with a two-part adhesive. Then we back it
up with a perforated angle to give it the
structural quality that is needed. This creates
a very strong, structurally sound corner, with
an exact match to both paint color and profile.
Also, since many panel profiles do not nest
well enough for an attractive lap condition, we
can supply shop fabricated back-up plates. By
adjusting the rib dimensions, we can more
closely match the back of the panel profile.
This gives the system a continuous
appearance, without an unsightly mismatched lap.
Other manufacturers make mitered corners.
They fabricate the panel in aluminum, miter the
ends and weld the two pieces together. This
does create a strong structurally sound corner.
Unfortunately, it also creates three conditions

corner color to the panel. This type of
paint application will weather differently
than in a factory applied finish.
