Wood siding under aluminum


We have aluminum siding from the late 80's or early 70s with part of the aluminum having a vertical pattern we are not a fan of. I know we have wood underneath. Anyone had a similiar situation with aluminum on top of wood for say 30 years and then taken it off? Just wondering what condition the wood would be in. Could is be repainted and have a decent result or what would have to be done to restore the wood siding?

Wood siding under aluminum


Condition of the wood would depend on a host of factors that would be specific to the home, climate, and installation correctness of the previous siding.

If the wood is in good shape, it can be restored but at what cost.

Many folks get away from wood because of the expense of fixing/maintaining as compared to something that is more maintenance free.

Wood siding under aluminum


My wife liked LP smart siding. Just seemed silly to put that on top of what we have. We both just aren't huge fans of vinyl and or aluminum needs paint or replacing. We just have a two story home and the front of the home on the upper level the siding is vertical which we aren't huge fans of. Just trying to figure out our options.
