Siding the Garage
We have finished siding the garage, and are very satisfied with the results. Notice that the new siding on the garage matches the siding on the home.
Our last major siding project was when we built our house in 1977. It was done using Masonite hardboard siding, guaranteed for 20 years, and still looking great after over 35 years. Vinyl should last at least that long.
Masonite is HEAVY and awkward. Cutting it required a jigsaw. But vinyl is feather light, and still a bit awkward, as it is highly flexible. I would still consider it a 2-person job for that reason. Cutting it across was easily done with a pair of aviation tin-snips ($12 at Home Depot) and longitudinal cuts were easily done by scoring with a utility knife and folding on the scored line. Watching the YouTube videos greatly simplified the task!
