We are just about done with this job.....and as a side note every time I take pictures of a vinyl siding job, I get a tremendous amount of picture distortion when posting. I can assure you it is just the pics and not a fault of the siding.
This customer has had this house/farm in the family for 100 years....they figured the house needed a facelift. he is a Intenational Harvester (brand of tractor) fan and wanted the house red. I have never put on red vinyl siding in my 19 years of being in the business, but one thing I learned a long time ago is to give the customer what they want...so RED it is!
I put 1/4" fanfold over the existing old board siding and then started installing the vinyl over the fanfold. Incredibly this old house is still very straigh and for most parts still plumb.
I can not believe how many people have stopped and wanted to tell me what a difference I have made on this old farm house and they LIKE the color red. I still have to install white shutters and he also wanted me to build on a new deck off the kitchen. The deck is about 80% done.
As always...Thanks for looking.
