Always Read the Instructions

Norbord BlogThere are certain pitfalls that construction professionals are prone to making that can reduce the longevity of their roof, wall and floor system. One of the ones we neglect most often is to follow the manufacturer’s Instructions.

This seems obvious, but it’s important to remember that products that look similar may have very different installation protocols and even building code requirements. Always defer to the manufacturer’s instructions and notify your design professional if they conflict with their instructions. Failure to follow the instructions can lead to a lack of durability or your warranty may be void.

Be sure to read instructions on each material before installation because even the smallest changes are there for a reason and keep a record of manufacturer’s guidelines with the foreman.
