concrete steps and siding

I will be pouring concrete steps to replace some wooden ones that have rotted away. The siding under the door, extends down for 6 or 7 inches below where the top of the landing will be.

What can I use to prevent pouring concrete over the siding?

Is the siding vinyl?

Are your intentions on pouring the top concrete step against the siding using it as a form for the back of the last step?

Yes the siding is vinyl and it will be the back of the form unless I leave a gap between the form and the house.

steps

It would be better to cut the sideing out from behind the pour.

Use an expansion between pour and building, use a piece of black felt paper. against the house and let it run well above the pour to prevent spatters going on to the siding and simply cut it out after concrete is set.

If you pour against the siding, the area
of the siding pushed back against the building, will show up after you remove the forms, the siding that comes out from behind the concrete will have and looking appearance to it if it were would it be OK. I hope you understand what I mean as I am not describing it very well.

Cut the siding and buy end cap strips made for vinyl siding, for both sides and the areaof siding above pour if any.

Someone poured concrete against my OSB, LP siding. help.

BackGround:

all new 1 year ago, and the Moron contractor poured concrete 1/2 inch above my siding.

LP siding (osb) fully sealed caulked primed, and painted.

75 feet about 1/2 is wrong this way.
what should I do. ?

should I take a saw and cut it back 1 inch and then put aluminum trim 30 degree flashing on this
edge with 50 year stretch RTV caulk or should I treat the concrete to siding juncture.

This is a Garage , with nice deep footings and slab inside and 6 inch stud walls planted on treated
lumber sill.
can anyone advise me of a solution short of a jack hammer.

Thank you one and all for any solutiion or help. [email protected]
