Pictures of Houses With Metal Siding

This vertical metal siding

Personally, I like the looks of a painted house. It really depends on your situation and the condition of the house. If the house is in good condition (very little rot and or peeling paint), I would go with paint. If the house is prepared properly and repainted with a good product, it will last many years especially if you maintain it. Spend a part of a day once a year fixing problem areas. A house requires maintenance; there is no way around that. Vinyl siding is a great product, I have installed it on many homes. It is by no means a permanent fix. It can break in hail storms, melt if the grill gets too close, and it will fade and oxidize over time. Ultimately, sometime down the road maybe 20, maybe 30 years, who knows the product hasn't even been around that long, it will need to be replaced. If your house in in need of a lot of repair in order for a paint job to look good, I would then go with vinyl siding, it is economical and a great product if installed properly. Get plenty of bids and avoid high pressure sales, they will promise you the world and in the end you will not get what you want and over pay for it. Alot of people get vinyl siding on their house just so they do not have to paint again. The problem with that is how long do most people live in one house (5-7 years on average). Your condition may change and you may want or need to move in the next few years.

Easiest is to find a local bee keeper. They will usually remove free of charge to add to their collection. Or wait until a cold, 20-30 degree day and remove them yourself. If you cant get to them spray sulfur and water as close to them as possible.

Many times! One coat latex exterior primer such as Kilz II Follow with finish coat Some paints advertise that they go right over vinyl without a primer but the paint holds up much better with a primer

unfold it or buy a new one, of course you may could find a used one.

The mirror will pop out of the housing. It is very difficult to do but it can be done. If yours is broken I would recommend buying a new housing and mirror off eBay. If you can find just the mirror you are lucky. Anyway, the back of the mirror looks like plus sign +. The mirror is attached using 4 screws that are on the tips of the +. To move the mirror the motor screws in or out. Move the mirror to the extremities and the pry each side out one by one. If you pull hard enough on the mirror you can get the screws to come out. So...if you are lucky enough to find a mirror then you will need to be lucky enough not to completely strip the motor when you pry out the mirror. It's really easier to install a new mirror I promise. To install a new mirror just remove the triangle piece on the interior and then unbolt and disconnect the wiring.

Woodpeckers dont eat wood, what they want are the insects inside. Get rid of the bugs and you will be rid of the birds. Woodpeckers and carpenter bees will make holes in soft untreated wood so paint or urethane would be another fix.

pull off plastic inside directly behind the mirror it just pulls off and you will expose the bolts to remove the mirror.

In the Northern Hemisphere, the south side of the house gets the most sunlight during the year. To maximize collection of solar energy from sunlight, solar panels are located at the south side of the house.

  • Avatar honesty_counts Why not just use Vinyl Siding instead of Asphalt Shingles? won't It will last much longer?
    Jun 18, 2010 by honesty_counts | Posted in Maintenance & Repairs

    I remember a demonstration of vinyl siding that had a rigid insulation backing, it was shown to be strong enough to walk on without deflecting or being damaged in any way. Every few years (15-20) it seems that homes always need their shingles replaced, but the vinyl siding never gets replaced, so the next time a roof needs to be replaced, why not just use vinyl siding instead?

    • Vinyl siding IS NOT water tight.
      Why shingle are not water proof they are if installed properly "water tight."
