My husband and I have been shopping around for vinyl siding installation. Besides enormously differing estimates ($5,900 to $38,000)we have also run into a difference of opinion concerning rotted wood. Some companies have said that they would just cover over the rotted wood. Others have said that they would remove and repair any rotted wood. One company has said that we have so much rotted wood, that it would be better to remove all the wood siding and then install the vinyl. They gave us a price for the removal, but the only catch is that the if more damage is found underneath, the cost of that repair is open ended. Help!!
