Re-siding most of our house


One more question for now. After removing the existing siding I'm sure I'll have areas where the foam is damaged.

Should I replace those areas with T&G XPS, OSB, or something else?

Re-siding most of our house


That was an enjoyable thread, glad I got to catch the tail end and see how it all worked out.

I do have a few questions;
Did you use the rainscreen that comes in a roll or the lotion type?
If you did not use a rainscreen, did you use stretchable wood siding so it would last?
" where the foam is damaged. Should I replace those areas with T&G XPS, OSB, or something else?" Use something else, anything else. Bit late to ask, doncha think? What did you use?
"Final product:" Completely finished. I like the permanently attached ladder, very convenient.

Rewound that is a supremely excellent job. It fits into the setting way better than before, and I'd bet it is structurally better than B4.

I'd best go, people are gathering rocks, they're gonna start chunkin' at me any minute now.
