Hello and welcome to today’s episode. Today we are going to talk about exterior corners.
Here at Elemex, we prefer mitered corners on all our surfaces. As you can see by the examples, the mitered corner gives a striking dimensional appearance to any returning edge.
Open or butt corners are often used in the industry and here are a few samples of what that might look like.
The negatives about an open corner are that you can see into the system and see the insulation or framing behind the panels. This takes away from the exterior appearance.
Also an open joint system allow a lot more moisture into the system as snow and rain can go directly into the wall cavity.
Our prefabricated panels will keep your corners looking straight and not have to deal with lining up miters on site during installation.
