When we bought our house the inspector told us that we'd have to replace some siding that was going bad around the chimney. Since then we decided to just go ahead and replace all of the siding w/ vinyl. We also have some areas around our front door that are rotting. You can put your nose up against the trim around the door and smell it - it's has that bad, wet rotting wood smell.
Do we have to replace the old, wood siding that's going bad before we put vinyl over it? Or can we just put vinyl siding over it and it will dry out?
Yes, I'm totally blonde when it comes to this kind of stuff and my husband (God love 'em!) is no better!
Thanks in advance!
