I got a couple estimates for vinyl siding and I decided that its not worth the investment since we may only live here another few years. I also am going to join in the class action lawsuit against the siding manufacture, because I have many problems at the rear of my house. The front and sides are ok, so I am going to get started replacing a bit of trim and recaulking everything, and then repainting.
I am looking for some recommendations for some materials. What is the best paintable caulk? What is a good bare wood primer? Should I try and strip paint or just clean it and paint over it? This house is a tall two story, should I attempt this with just a ladder, or should I get scaffolding(sp?)?
