Remove Any Nails and Take Out Damaged Panels

Here's How To Do It:

Vinyl siding can chip or dent. The good news is that it is fairly easy to remove and replace. When removing the siding and the nails, remember to use care as you do not want to damage any house wrap underneath.

Remove the Damaged Siding Panels

Insert a zipper into the seam between the top damaged panel and the one above it (Image 1). Pull out slightly so that it is clear of the damaged area.

Remove the nails from the damaged boards (Image 2). Then, remove the damaged panels.

Install the New Siding Panels

Starting at the bottom, fasten new boards in place.
