How to Cut Vinyl Siding About a Faucet

Vinyl siding can be one of the siding materials that are most easy to install, and it is once it is installed. Installing vinyl siding yourself can become tricky since the only way to fit the siding about them is to cut the siding once you encounter obstacles such as water faucets.

Notch the bottom of the piece of vinyl that you would like to fit around the tap. Make the notch about 1/4 inch wider than the tap pipe.

Cut on the siding to two bits if the faucet will be found at the midst of a bit of siding. Hold up each piece to the tap pipe, in which the pipe will pass through the vinyl and then mark with a pencil. So the bits fit on all sides of the tube, notch each half with your tin snips.

Position the siding behind the faucet, and make sure the nailing slots have been placed over the piece of plywood and the notched segment fits around the pipe. Nail the siding to place with galvanized nails. For nail the piece on one side of the faucet, and also do the same.

Hammer the nails although the siding is cozy, but abandon the nail head about 1/4 inch. The siding’s growth and contraction over the years need to be accommodated, and vinyl siding that’s pinpointed tight may crack.

Push on back the assembly into the wall, and then replace the screws to secure it.
