No, don't even give it a second thought. Do the right thing and take the aluminum off.

I got $600+ from the scrap yard for the last aluminum siding job I tore off. That was when it was only going for .43 a lb.

That is such a bad idea on so many levels.

They put new roofs over the old ones, why not siding :jester:

remove it,after thinking about it you could be siding over water,trapped in the old siding

i think VSI states it must be removed

sometimes i type faster than i think,and i don't type fast

In many areas with variable climate, you are not allowed to put new over old roofing even if you know it will shorten the ;ife and not perform well.

Granted siding is not as critical as roof fpr weatherproofing, there are other problems with trim and performance to be recognized in advance.

Vinyl over any other siding is a mistake.

probably the reason for not allowing roof layovers has to do with the added weight,not so much the shingle performance

i agree with the pros here remove existing materials when possible
