I am interested in residing a house originally done with t-111 wood siding, which was poorly painted and now water damaged and rotting in places. What are my options? I've talked to Vinyl siding companies (including Sears) and have gotten estimates of $18,000 and $12,000 for 2100 sq. ft. of surface. This seems damn expensive and I really don't like vinyl siding very much. I would appreciate anyones thoughts or suggestions.
