People have been using vinyl siding on their homes since the mid 20th century. It offers the benefit of low maintenance compared to wood siding at an affordable price, with complete resistance to rot and termites. Vinyl siding is not resistant to cracking and breaking, however, which can result in a less attractive exterior to your home and possible damage if water gets underneath. If you are in need of vinyl siding repair you have two options. You can go out and buy all the tools, get all the materials and learn how to do it yourself; or you can trust an experienced roofing contractor who is knowledgeable about vinyl siding repair to do it for you.
If you decide to go the do-it-yourself vinyl siding repair route, there are many tools that you will need to do the job right. You will need to find siding that matches perfectly with the material already on your home, first of all. You will also need to purchase a vinyl siding remover, which is also known as a zipper. This inexpensive hand tool is almost always necessary for vinyl siding repair because it loosens one piece of siding from the next and removes the damaged panel that is going to be replaced. You will also need tin snips; another relatively affordable and easy to find tool. A hand saw or utility knife would also suffice. Polyurethane caulking and aluminum box nails are also necessary to reattach the new piece of siding.
While a professional contractor or someone who has a great deal of experience in home improvement projects can complete the vinyl siding repair fairly quickly and without much trouble, a novice homeowner might not have such an easy time. There is also no telling whether the vinyl siding repair project will run into some complications. If things don’t go as smoothly as planned it could turn into much more than replacing a single piece of damaged siding.
