Vinyl siding

Thursday, September 3, 2009

What a difference! After painting the house over and over again the husband and I decided it was time for a change. We went out to Lowe's and Home Depot and check on vinyl siding cost and how to install. It's not that hard actually. You just need a level, tape, measure, and a big set of funky looking scissors. I didn't realize there was so many different parts that were involve in the siding though. There's starter strip which is the piece that you have to level all the way around the house to begin your courses of vinyl siding then there's outside corners that you have to level up on the four corners of your house. Then there's also J-channel that goes in the inside corners it also goes at the top underneath your eves. All in all it's pretty simple if you know how to use the tape measure and the level. Just remember to get the bubble of the level in the center of the lines on the level exactly and you'll be okay unless your house is very crooked to begin with. Lesson learned.
