Vinyl Siding

Does anyone have an opinion as to whether or not it's reasonably within the abilities of the average homeowner to install vinyl siding on an average house?

Thanks.

Vynal siding is not that difficult to do. If you are patient and like to learn, go to any of the major manufacturer websites. Look at the different products they have and look at your home and see if they apply. For example, you will see cornor pieces, J-trim for windows and doors, soffit and more. Ask if they have instructions for the do it yourselfer. And ask if the top piece on a gable end causes you to trim off the flanges, How do you secure the top piece? Learn as much as you can before you attempt to do it yourself. You can do it yourself but it is going to take a lot of time and patience on your part.
