GenStone artificial siding only requires a clean, dry substrate, such as OSB, plywood, concrete, or existing siding providing the surface is flat such as RB&B, Textured 1-11, or any hardboard panel siding. The panels are easily applied to almost any flat surface. There are no strapping or starter strips required unless you are installing or purchasing the product in Canada. Simply use a polyurethane safe adhesive (PL-200 or PL-300) and attach it with concrete screws (tapcons).
Below are a few videos that walk you through the installation process. They go over how to apply the adhesive, how to attach the panels to the wall, and where to place the face screws to finish it up.
