People also ask, how much does it cost to repair vinyl siding?
On average, homeowners can expect to spend between $400 and $600 for vinyl siding repair. Of course, there are many factors that can influence the actual cost. Aside from regional pricing trends, the type of siding can also influence repair and replacement costs.
Additionally, can you drill into vinyl siding? Fit a cordless drill with a standard wood bit about 1/16 inch larger than the screw if you're drilling through vinyl or steel siding. Hold the drill so the bit enters the siding straight and horizontally. Do not tilt the drill up, down or to either side. Drill only through the exterior siding.
Likewise, people ask, can you replace individual pieces of vinyl siding?
Unlike with interlocking vinyl floorboards, you don't have to disassemble your vinyl siding completely to access the damaged piece. Instead, use a purpose-built tool called a zip tool to unlock the piece from the ones above and below it and to lock in the replacement piece.
Why is my vinyl siding buckling?
Vinyl siding expands significantly as it's heated. That's why it has oval-shaped nailing slots that allow it to slide back and forth under the nailhead. Nail it too tightly and you prevent this movement—and cause buckling. Finally, ordinary, sunlight-induced heat can soften siding to the point that it starts to sag.
