Most Common Types of Siding: Vinyl, Composite, and Wood/Cedar
Step 1—Tear off the Existing Siding
This first step in the process includes:
- Removing the existing siding, trim, fascia, and soffit, as needed
- Inspecting the sheathing under the siding and wood trim
Step 2—Install House Wrap
- Install house wrap to protect sheathing
- Flash windows, doors, etc.
- Tape the seams of house wrap to prevent water intrusion
Step 3—Install Inside and Outside Corners
The purpose of installing these sections during this step is to:
- Give siding a finished look and prevent future water damage
Step 4—J-Channel and J-Blocks
- Protect your home with J-Channel, which is installed around windows and doors to help keep water from seeping in at these areas, as well as cover the ends of the siding to give your home a clean, finished look.
During this step, starter is installed around the perimeter of the home in order to hold the first row of siding in place.
Step 6—Siding Installation
- Leveling the siding and nailing it down
- Ensuring the siding is installed so that each piece locks tightly onto the ones surrounding it
- Installing the siding so that it flows evenly around corners and obstacles
- Apply caulking where necessary, like between the J-Channel and trim
Step 7—Wrapping Trim, Fascia, and Soffit (Optional)
