    In regards to the drip cap, how does the vinyl siding attach to those
    areas? Do you install J-channel on top of it or do you install a starter
    strip?

    @Shannon you mention you are *not* using the starter strip and give a
    reason, but I really didn’t understand your reason. Why is the J channel a
    good substitute in your example? Why does it matter if there was already
    an existing elevation you’re trying to match.

    Why didn’t you put J channel around the dryer vent? It appeared the cover
    didn’t “seal” around it. What did you do to seal it?

    Nice video as always! Going to try and side an ice fishing house for an
    experiment! Think I got enough knowledge to do the job now thanks to your
    video! I think you may have missed something in the video though, measure,
    cut, fit, take off, remeasure, cut again and install again :)

    is there a good way to fix a corner without taking it all down. i have one
    with rock damage i was thinking about trying to make a patch out of a scrap
    corner piece and glueing it in place.

    nice job, I am a sider also and was checking your video to see if there are
    any tricks I don’t know. You did a great job, I also prefer the krimper
    tool for pieces under windows or last pieces before the soffit. One thing
    though, if you would put more meta-data in your description, google would
    place your ad in higher rankings and you would get more views. thanks for
    the post.

    Can you install new vinyl siding over existing cedar shingle siding without
    installing new windows?

  20. nwjt says:

    I am going to replace one side of my house. They sell the exact siding I
    had but I found a close match in color. Will I have to replace all the j
    molding and stuff too or will the new siding just snap to the existing?

  21. elvin mosses says:

    Buddy you need to learn how to chalk level lines and use your tape and pull
    up a 16th of an inch on each row,if everybody sides that way you all end up
    with the same finisher:p

  22. Jim Thomas says:

    Is the drip cap over the top of the window made out of J-channel ? It
    looked like it was but I wasn’t sure since you never referred to it as
    being J-channel.

    I have a question I am siding my garage it is a bit old has vertical boards
    with these strips covering the seams. Anyway, on the side of the garage the
    boards go very close to the top of pavers height below the board is a
    gap can I fill this gap that probably 1-1/2 ” wide and as thick as the
    pavers with concrete (rapid set )? I just don’t want the siding to absorb
    water when it rains or snows. TY
