Learn How to Install Vinyl Siding
Did you know that you can revamp an old house with vinyl siding? A home siding company can do it for you, but if you choose to DIY, the first thing you want to keep in mind is that you have to peel everything off and start afresh for the best outcome. Of course, that will be a lot of work, but it will undoubtedly be worth it.
Vinyl siding is made from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) resin.
Starting on the bottom, attach starter strips to your house, then lock in the first piece of siding over it. Snap the next piece onto the one underneath it, and continue up.
When you get to a window or other object that interrupts your siding, run, measure and cut the panel so it overlaps slightly at the top and bottom. A power saw works best for cutting vinyl, but you can also use a utility knife or tin snips.
The easiest way to install vinyl siding is in rows running from left to right as you stand facing your house. This helps you avoid walking on wet mortar when installing new windows or doors.
