Hold a siding starter strip, provided by the producer, horizontally at the bottom of the location to be sided. Place a level on the strip and change it as essential.
Drive 3/4-inch or longer roofing nails through the holes in the nailing fin of the strip with a hammer. Place nails every 8 to 10 inches.
Position an inside or outdoors corner post– depending on the wall you are siding– vertically against the side of the wall where you wish to begin the siding.
Cut the post to length with tin snips so that it hangs below the starter strip at the bottom of the wall by 1/2-inch and is within 1/4-inch of the eave or soffit at the top of the wall.
Nail the post into place with roof nails spaced every 10 to 12 inches. Set up another post on the opposite side of the wall in the exact same fashion.
