How to hang something from vinyl siding house


Looking to probably build an arbor above our garage doors but cannot figure how to attach it to the actual house. Should I expect to cut out part of the vinyl? Or hang on the vinyl? What is protocol?

Is this on a Gable end?
Usually peel off the siding and attach directly and reinstall needed flashings and siding

take off the siding, and put a ledger board on the house, build whatever you want, reinstall siding and flash it

Jblocks around here are for lights and such, how would you use that for mounting a ledger board?

It would be much easier to just set posts to hold the arbor instead of attaching it to the house. In addition, if you do this, it would give you the option of removing the arbor at a future time if your tastes changed.

I thought an arbor was a stand alone trellised arched entry into a garden area? What would something like this be doing above a garage door?
