Installing Vinyl siding


Hi everyone, great site cha got here... glad I found it. Whatever did we do before the internet? LOL

my questions are about Vinyl siding. It lookslike I have the skill set to do this but I have a few questions.

1. Can I install it over the existing wood siding?
2. Does it all have to be done at once? ie can I do one side of the house on Monday, or do I need to just to all the trimming first?
3. Can I hang the siding by myself?
4. What special tools will I need?

and last... do you have additional "How to" sources for this project?

Thanks in advance,
v/r
Rob

I could have used you last year. I started volunteering as a side-walker for Boots-n-Breeches, helping the challenged riders. Those horses can get BIG. However, I researched horse behavior and learned a lot. They are definitely a "flight" animal. With three attempts, I was only step on once. (Glad it was a quick step, no real damage).lol
Do a search above, in the orange color zone (search box) for vinyl siding, much to learn. AND, WELCOME to the forum!!

Be safe, Gary
