Contractor Handbook - Installing Stealth Skirtboard

Stealth Skirtboard Application

Nominal 8” Skirtboard meets manufacturer’s and LEED’s recommended installation guidelines for grade applications using fiber cement and wood composite sidings. It is available in 4", 6" & 8" widths in nominal thickness 5/4" and 8" & 10" widths in 1x nominal thickness.

Stealth Skirtboard Installation Guidelines

  • Flash around the base of the wall a minimum of 10 1/2" up from the sill plate if a house wrap is not used.
  • Fasten the Stealth Skirtboard the same way as VERSATEX trimboard. Since the Skirtboard is so close to grade, stainless steel fasteners are recommended.
  • Maximum nail spacing 16” on center.
  • Install fiber cement or wood composite siding over the VERSATEX Skirtboard in accordance with manufacturer's installation guidelines.
