Wood Siding Repair









This is the side of a garage parking area in an apartment complex but it will serve well to show how to do wood siding repair or replacing wood siding on a house. The only difference between this exterior wood siding repair and home siding repair is there is no backing Tyvak paper on this one because it's just a parking structure. In a house you would have Tyvak Homewrap, which goes between the paneling and the studs and overlaps itself, ideally overlapping at the studs and tightly nailed. If this job had needed paper, I would have had to pull out the nails on both sides of the repair, slip the paper underneath the 2 panels and renail them both before I started nailing the panels back on (but after I had reframed, of course.)
