i plan on replacing some damaged siding on my home i just need to replace the first 4 pices up from the bottom i am planning on using concrete type siding how do i remove the panel to get started
Very carefully, hahaha doing it now, first row is a PITA and felt like burning the house down after the first hour or so, got easier as I went along, I use a flatbar to lift the upper siding away from the house and stick a 1" block in to hold it out, do this approx every 2 feet or so, then using a catspaw remove the hails holding the lower sheet of siding, when all nails are gone slightly lift up and out on the piece to be removed, on the new piece remember to cut approx 1/4 to 3/8 off top edge to allow you to lift the siding high enough to catch the aluminum starter strip attached to the house, you can also break the plastic locator strip off the upper siding piece to accomplish the same thing if you don't want to cut the new piece, to finish I space deck screws every 2" at 3/4 inched from bottom of the overlapped siding, start in 1' from the end then 2' intervals, also got the nifty little white caps I silicone on top of the screw so it a nicely finished piece, O Yeah remember the most important tool CASE OF BEER so when people complain that it's not straight (and it won't be) then you can blame it on the beer, hahaha good luck and have fun.
does anyone have an instruction sheet that came with a bundle of colorlok masonite siding? I'm pretty sure the sub threw it away. Some of my bottom boards are rotting from moisture. I have enough left over to repair the damage boards but I need some pictures of how it was put on. I've searched the internet thoroughly but to no avail. reply to [email protected]
Should I partially replace the cedar with something ...
