Siding replacement begins with the preparation of the necessary tools, which include a mounting hook, a nail puller, a screwdriver or a hammer.
For careful dismantling of an unusable panel, you will need to use a special hook for installation. Between this panel and the one above, the end of the hook is inserted into the lock and gently stretches first down, and then along the coating, releasing the mount. When the lock is unfastened along the entire length, the top panel must be bent to open access to the nail strip. With the help of a nail puller or screwdriver, all fasteners should be removed; if individual nails fail to pull out, they should be tightly hammered into the sheathing. It is important to take into account one feature if during installing the siding the panels are mounted with only self-tapping screws, then the panels will be replaced much faster.
The new panel is applied to the place removed and secured with screws. The main thing to remember is that it is impossible to tighten the self-tapping screws or hammer nails into the holes on the siding since the material is slightly deformed due to the temperature drop. If it is not possible to taper and expand freely, it will deform even more, which will eventually lead to heaving and cracking of the coating. After fixing the panel to the sheathing, locks must be latched with a hook.
In order for a new panel to be repaired, it does not differ in color from those already installed, it is necessary to purchase several panels in case of emergency during the installation process.
