A damaged vinyl siding can be a terrible sight to look at; that’s why learning how to replace a vinyl siding is a great way to save money and time. Here are the basic steps for vinyl siding installation to get it fixed.
Step 1: To remove the damaged pieces of vinyl sidings, place your hand on the joint and pull the vinyl down as it will snap out of the groove or the nailing strip so you can pull out all of the nails.
Step 2: With the sidings already loose, you can snap out the sidings, look for nails, and use a hammer to remove all the nails in the areas where the sidings are to be replaced.
Step 3: Once all of the nails in the damaged sidings are removed, get your new vinyl siding and push it onto the nailing strip so you can hammer it down. Ensure that the new vinyl siding snaps right back up into the nailing strip so you can proceed to your next step in vinyl siding installation.
Step 4: When nailing the new siding, it is highly recommended to hammer the nail loosely. You do this to allow expansion or contraction when the weather is cool or hot.
Step 5: If only a small portion of the vinyl siding needs to be replaced, all you have to do is cut the damaged section and replace it with a new one.
