As long as the exposed facings are not damaged, you can renail it. The issue is getting it overlapped again without damaging the parts.We recently had our siding pressure washed, and now some of the siding seems to be coming away from the house. Is it possible to just nail the siding back in place? What should we do? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
Bill, will the zip tool work on aluminum siding? Is there enough give in aluminum?The way siding works, the bottom snaps into the piece under it and the top is nailed. The nails are covered by the next piece above it. I am guessing the pieces have come unsnapped. You can usually get them to snap back together by gently forcing the piece over the locking edge on the piece below. There is a simple tool called a zip tool that can assist this, available at homes stores that sell siding.
