Installing new flashing

I had to replace some flashing on a roof because it was full of holes and rusted. The only problem was that one part of the flashing was behind the aluminum siding and I didn't quite know how to remove the siding so I could properly install the new flashing. How would you remove that first piece of aluminum siding? Is it similar to removing vinyl siding?

No... if you want to reuse aluminum siding, you will have to cut the nails an slide it out pice by piece or you will ruin the siding.

If you dont mind re-doing the entire side, then just rip it!

thanks AaronB. So I would have to remove the siding from the top down by cutting the nails?

17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?
