I was wanting to replace the pine siding in front of my garage.
Its stood vertical and goes like above my garage door to the peak of my gable roof.
what is the best way to know how to cut my boards for the angles?

You could use a bevel gauge to transfer the angle to your siding.

Just save one of the old boards for a pattern.

Check the garage door head flashing for possible replacement at this time....
After cutting the rake top cut, hold the board up where it goes to mark the door head (bottom cut), much easier than measuring twice (wall/board). If you have continuous ridge vent and a gable vent, cover the gable vent and side over it. Leave a proper gap at the top if butting an overhang. The pine siding will move a lot compared to the plywood soffit overhang (especially in full sun), if applicable. Use backer rod (or caulk saver) http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?actio...464&lpage=none to get a good hourglass shape with the caulking for maximum movement durability: pp. #30- http://books.google.com/books?id=fDs...age&q=&f=false

pp. #35: http://books.google.com/books?id=XHA...0break&f=false

The caulking must not bond to the back, hence backer rod: (more on bead width) http://www.coastalcontractor.net/article/117.html

Ok, now I’m rambling on…

Be safe, Gary
