Replace Soffits, Etc., But Leave Original Vinyl Siding?
Wondering if anyone out there can help with a vinyl siding question...
The short version:
Is it possible to replace fascia, soffits, and window trim but leave the existing vinyl siding in place? It is from 1984 but looks ok.
I am not sure how everything gets installed and the order in which it must be done.
The long version:
My roof, gutters, several windows and the trim around them need to be replaced. This would be the logical time to just re-do the entire exterior, including the existing vinyl siding.
However, the estimates for the siding (a "might as well" project at this point) are much more expensive than for the roof (which is a necessity).
I hesitate to invest in the siding because my house will always be on the verge of being a tear-down should we sell in the next several years. It's a small, older house on a flat corner lot in a neighborhood of newer, larger homes. During the height of the bubble, anything similar in size and age was razed and replaced.
