Question:


Our house has white vynal, plastic siding can I nail half logs or logs over the vynal siding without taking the siding off? I'm afraid if I take the siding of the insulation will fall of too. What do I need to look for? Thank you for your answer.

Answer:

I would not recommend putting it right over thevinyl siding. There should be some sheathing under the siding that will hold the insulation in. If not, you need to install some before putting up log siding. I would recommend a vapor barrierlike Tyvex also.
