I am trying to figure out the best way to cut vinyl sidind to put a AC unit in the side of the house. How do i wrap the J-channel around the AC and nail it so it looks nice. Thanks for your advice
Are you putting in a window type unit and if so, is it going in a new opening versus a window?
Go thru all the steps of installing the AC unit (that is a whole nother ballgame):
Important: Make sure that you seal that AC unit up good before you install the Vinyl siding.
The J-channel is installed on the exterior wall sheathing using 1 1/4" roof tacks (NOT onto the AC unit). If you want to know more about installing this, see this link and study the section on installing J-channel around windows:
The application would be the same around your AC unit. Again, make sure that you properly weather-seal around the AC unit itself, prior to re-installing your vinyl components.
