Vinyl Siding Installation
Installation of vinyl siding starts at the bottom and is worked up. The joints should be staggered as layers are added to make a waterproof installation. When nailing vinyl siding panels DO NOT fully set the nail head. Approximately 1/8" to 1/4" of the nail head should be left exposed. The vinyl siding panel should be free to move or float.
