New eBook? Maybe. Homeowner’s Guide to Buying Vinyl Siding Installation Like a PRO!

Buying Vinyl Siding Installation Like a PRO! ???  You have our attention!

Homeowners are being asked if they would like inside information about buying vinyl siding released via an eBook.  The proposed book from the desk of Robert Bury (the founder of Siding4u, Contractors With Integrity & the soon to be released eSiding network).  Robert Bury (the author) has spent the better part of the past 25 years educating homeowner’s about vinyl siding, it’s benefits and how to get it without paying too much.

“I’ve reached a lot of people so far but there are still homeowners paying way too much and to companies that honestly don’t deserve the business, in my opinion.  In this book I’ve honed the whole process down to it’s core steps and procedures plus I’ve added several things people won’t find elsewhere online.” ~ Robert Bury

When asked why Robert doesn’t just release this information online he said, “Several companies don’t want this information out there.  And we’ve been attacked before and didn’t have the capital to defend ourselves, it almost destroyed our efforts.  This time we need to be prepared.  Some of these companies are not happy about losing sales to honest contractors and when you are talking about homeowners paying 2 to 3 times what the honest contractors get, we’re talking about big big money because we’re talking about 100’s to 1,000’s of homeowners not going with the charming and ‘seems-like-a-nice-guy’ crooked companies.”

So this is kind of a different twist – this book may never be released, unless enough people speak up and say they want it.  You can read more and cast your vote here.

Replacing Vinyl Siding

DIY Video on How To Replace Vinyl Siding after it has been melted by a Barbecue.

If you have melted your vinyl siding by placing a barbeque too close to your house don’t feel bad… it’s pretty common. Most reputable siding contractors should give you the BBQ and weed eater talk.

The video below actually has a lot of really good information and “visually” shows you the process of replacing damaged vinyl siding.  We’d like to add that most vinyl siding expands and contracts 1/4 inch per 12 feet and that is the “typical” minimum amount of movement the vinyl siding panel is required to have.

Great Job Dominick DIY… keep up the good work!

Vinyl Siding Tip: How to Attach Stuff to Vinyl Siding

So you’ve got vinyl siding and you’d like to attach something to it without causing some potentially big issues.

…well here’s what the experts do…

Rule #1) Allow For Movement!

I can’t stress this enough, you must allow vinyl siding to move BECAUSE it typically expands and contracts 1/4″ (one quarter inch) per 12′ (twelve feet).  If you don’t allow vinyl siding to move it will most likely buckle and warp under the pressure.
So MAKE SURE the vinyl siding can slide back and forth at least 1/4″ in all areas. (continue reading…)
