    We are pricing out an installing a 4x10 of 2mm Dibond on a storefront and it is going on vinyl siding. I haven't done an installation on vinyl siding on something this large. And any advice on how to go about it would be really helpful.

    Thanks all

    Go to Lowe's and get a roll of 2" foam insulation that is designed for window air conditioners, etc. It should have a two sided tape on it. Put that on the back of the dibond around the outer edge. A double cleat system for the top and bottom will hold it in place well. A piece of one by four cut in half with the blade on a 45 will make your cleats. One 8 footer on top and bottom. Screw the cleats to the board before lettering. put in place then screw from top and bottom to join the cleats. Just my two cents and I am sure there are a million ways to do it.

    If you've never done anything like this before.... are you covered insurance-wise and are you capable of doing it without ruining the customer's wall ??

    On sideing like that we usually build a pan sign on 1x1 tube.
    But if it's a budget job you can just screw right to the building and touch up the heads.

    Should predrill holes in the siding only slightly larger than the fastners. This allows the siding to expand and contract ....it wont buckle when it gets hot or cold lol
