Vinyl siding has been used on homes since the middle of the 20th century. People love it because it provides low maintenance and resistance to termites and rot. Plus it’s affordable.
It is, however, not resistant to breaking or cracking which can certainly affect the appearance of your home and also give way to potential water damage underneath. If you find your home in need of vinyl repair, you basically have two options: 1- Purchase all the tools and materials you need and fix it yourself, or 2. Trust an expert roofer who is experienced and knowledgeable about repairing vinyl siding and have them do it for you.
If you choose to do it yourself, you’ll want to be sure that you have or get the right tools you need. You will want to find an exact match for your siding so it goes perfectly with what is currently on your home. A zipper is needed, which is an inexpensive hand tool used to remove siding. Snips, hand saw or utility knife are other tools you will want to have. For reattaching the new siding, you will need aluminum box nails as well as polyurethane caulking.
