The most dificult part of installing vinyl siding is installing the "J" moulding around the doors and windows. Make sure that you snap a level chalk line around the entire house, one at the starter course and one for a reference line at about head height. It is very easy to gain or loose height with vinyl. Also remember to leave 1/4" clearance between the siding and the "J" moulding and corner trim.
