I have aluminum siding on my house. I am going to install blown in insulation. The way it was explained to me is that they remove on run from the alumimum siding and drill holes in the exterior wall. They then blow the insulation in from outside. The question i have is, how do you remove the aluminum siding? What are the steps?

Thanks,
Lee

Can be removed without taking down the whole wall of siding. It is all locked together.

Ok, How do you disconnect each section?

Sorry, typo.
I have been in the remodeling area for a majority of my life, and now I work with siding on a daily basis, and I am not aware of any way to remove a piece of aluminum from the middle of the wall without ruining it.
It can be done with vinyl, but not aluminum. You must remove the wall working from the top down.

Keep going tinman. How do you get the top run down? He's doing blown insulation. I would think when they say one run of siding they aren't talking the middle run. They're talking the top one or two rows. I would think they are only talking the side of the house that normally has gutters on it. The end with the peaks I would think you would do from inside the attic. If you did the siding method you would have to pull 5-15 runs away.
