Vinyl Siding Installation Process Tips

  • The best way to get started when installing vinyl siding is to make sure you strip the exterior down to the bare minimum. There are certain materials that you can potentially leave on your house if they are in good shape, but the most recommended way is to get your home down to the sheathing!
  • Make sure everything gets measured properly, and when measuring your house for siding do not deduct for windows or doors. Vinyl siding can be cut to accommodate these deductions later.
  • Don’t attempt to do this job on your own. Hanging vinyl siding from one ladder is very difficult, especially when you are dealing with very flexible pieces. Grab a friend, two ladders, and a level to make sure everything is hung evenly and straight.
  • Always start from your backyard and work forward towards the street and remember to use the factory edge at the seams; this guarantees you get the proper overlap.
  • The most critical step in installing vinyl siding is to understand that you are not nailing your siding to your house, you are actually hanging it! Fastening your vinyl siding to your house hard will not allow it to expand or contract. This can cause the vinyl siding to buckle in some areas.

So why should you choose vinyl siding? You can still get the distinguished style you are looking for and receive all the benefits that comes along with switching to vinyl siding.
