vinyl Siding / Soffit Question


No I do not have help. When I looked into where to get the siding materials, I found a local place. One of the guys they have working there used to install it, and he has been giving me tips and pointers of how to do it.

Ask him about rentals in your area,and see if he has Saturday's off.
Everyone could use a few extra $'s,maybe he'd be willing to help.

vinyl Siding / Soffit Question


I think I may have done these outside corner posts wrong. If you look at this picture, you can see where I cut the post off even with the bottom of the soffit.



I think I should have run this right side of the post all the way up to the gable soffit, and notched it out for the front. I know I can add a half piece of corner to this gable end wall and lengthen it up to the gable soffit, but I feel like that wont look right.

Will this work or should I have notched it like I was explaining?

Yes you should have notched it, but unless you want to buy another corner you'll have to patch it in somehow. Have you done any other corners or is this the first?

Or you could do like the picture in post 26 I've never seen that done that way before but it looks like a very workable thing to do that may still work!

I've already cut them all. Oh well .

I think all four of the corners were around $50. I may just pick up some more of them. I really hate to patch them.

Your corners will work alright.
Just extend the last piece of soffit over it and have the return
bent to meet it.
We do it all the time,even without the framed box there.
I'll see if I can draw up some pics of what I'm trying to explain.

Sorry to interrupt. Did anyone mention the window flashing is wrong?

Here you go,
A good brake guy could do this or something similar to address that area.

How so?

Can you please elaborate? I know the bottom strip of flashing should be under the window flange instead of over. Is this what you are talking about?

This is what Brian42 is talking about, as illustrated in post 26. That could work. I am still looking at what to do.

Didn't you say somewhere that you had help that use to install?
