One of the things I wanted to do from the very start was to get rid of the vinyl siding on the house. First of all, I dislike vinyl siding. DO you knwo that it is actually more angerous in a fire than wood because it holds the heat in the wall and creates a more intense fire and sometype of toxic fumes are released.. I can't remember all of the information about it..but here is a post from John atThe Devil Queen that expresses my sentiments exactly and almost entirely. Anyway..Marc was not as comfortable with the idea...his concern was that the vinyl was covering up a major problem. Yes, he does tend to be passive aggressive. :) If thereis a problem I want to tackle it head on. Sometimes literally.
Anyway, so we got the doors replaced and..oh the horror! They tore up the vinyl siding by the doors and the original beveled siding peeked through.
Paint badly peeling, trim removed (of course) wood dried out..but it looks like it is going to be o.k..
SO I am going to do on section at a time..and...
THAT STUPID SIDING IS OUT OF HERE.
Maybe I will drop it off at walmart. With the Devil. :)
