Re: Best method for skirting

Checked the link. Is that the same material that would be used for roofing? I actually checked on that because after we do the siding, we're jumping to do the roof and plan to do a metal one and those sheets are $28 a sheet. I'm guessing that would be a lot more than my $360 estimate for the vinyl a...

Best way to put on siding

Putting on new vinyl siding in a couple weeks and wondering what the best way to do it would be and it still look good. Right now it has the white metal (not sure if it's aluminum or what) siding on it but it's not flat. It has vertical outward grooves in it about every two inches. I was planning on...

Best method for skirting

So we will be stripping this place of the this metal siding and putting on all vinyl here in a week or two. Will also be putting on a new roof and new skirting. I am looking for ideas for skirting. I want it to look good but not cost an arm and a leg to do. I like the look of some of the fake stone ...

Re: Order to do outside remodel

Very nice, I like how that looks and I think I'll do it. Question, how did you attach the "rafter extensions" to the board that attaches to the side? Screw them from the opposite side of the board? I know you'd put a board on the front of that but want to be certain on how you attached them to the b...

Re: Order to do outside remodel

Ok, got that figured out. I am assuming 1/2" plywood would be fine for this kind of project as long as I cover it with some sort of wrap? I attached a picture of the existing "gutter" and a look at the roof. I don't think I'll be able to have much of an overhang. The roof itself isn't very steep so ...

Re: Order to do outside remodel

I'm not sure what you mean by frame rails. Like I said, the whole bottom of wrapped so I can't really see anything but the steel frame so I can't see any joists, boards, anything at all. So I'm kind of lost as far as knowing where to put more support at.

Re: Order to do outside remodel

Here's a pic of the very back. I see nothing but the steel frame that rests on the blocks and the entire place has a black liner on it that you can see at the top of the picture. If I try to feel up on the edge, I don't feel anything like 2x4's or anything like that. It just feels flat. I really don...

Re: Order to do outside remodel

Ok, that's what I thought it would be. I just checked cause I wasn't sure. This one has two steel beams going longways and it looks like they are sitting on two or three blocks and on the bottom of those are square concrete pads. On top of the blocks are pieces of wood/shims. It looks like these are...

Re: Order to do outside remodel

Any particular way this has to be done or got a link maybe on how the whole process should be done? Is it just stacking cinder blocks from the ground up or is it more in depth?

Re: Order to do outside remodel

What do you mean add perimeter blocking for extra weight? Thanks for the reply, very helpful.

Order to do outside remodel

I have a 16'x72' (guesstimate) the wife and I have lived in for over 10 years. We have pretty much redone the complete inside over the years and we want to work on the outside this summer. I would like to put a new metal roof over the existing peaked metal noisy roof that's on it. Would also like to...
