Installation

Vinyl siding installation

 I want to side my home with vinyl siding, I'm a do-it-yourselfer but this is a pretty big job. Some questions I have, do I remove my existing cedar shake siding or just go over it? How big of a job is it really to do or should I leave it to a pro?

How game are you?? Installing vinyl siding can be a do-it-yourself job. Actually the siding part is relatively easy. The trim work is always the hardest part. If you can find an installer that will work with you, maybe you can do part of the job.

The thickness is regulated by A.S.T.M D3679 and should be no less than .035 in thickness, premium siding product will measure 40 plus or minus .005.

 

Cutting

Cutting Vinyl Siding?

We want to install a chimney and need to cut the existing vinyl siding in order to attach the two by four for the chimney framing. What is the best way to cut vinyl that is in place already ?

If there is nothing under there that will be affected, set your circular saw for a minimum cut and snap a line and run it up the line.

I have cut it with a utility knife, but I wouldn't try it on that job. The saw will give y...
