How to Repair Vinyl Siding

Handyman repairing vinyl sidingVinyl siding is one of the most fragile siding materials on the market, and may often need repairs and touchups. If your home has vinyl siding, you want to contact the experts at Fuller’s Home & Hardware for exceptional siding repair in Hinsdale, IL.

In order to repair siding on your own, you will need the following tools and materials:

  • Matching vinyl siding material
  • A vinyl siding zip tool
  • Tin snips
  • A pry bar
  • A claw hammer
  • Galvanized nails
  • A utility knife
  • A carpenter’s square or straight metal edge

Since vinyl siding is very thin, you will need to ensure your new material properly interlocks with the existing siding. When driving the nails through the siding, you do not want to nail it tight against the nail hem. This will prevent it from moving with temperature changes and will cause the siding to buckle and create additional damage.
