Vinyl siding ?

Hi, It appears I will remain with my rubber crown style roof for now. As i originally said, It does not leak. My windows are all replaced with new double pane sashes so I have the extra trim thickness already on the exterior. Should I use Tyvek product under the vinyl? Some in the park have and others have not. Some have added vertical strapping....some have applied the vinyl directly over the aluminum. I would also like to design an eave or soffit design to give the appearance that the vinyl is under an eave. Is it best to just be creative and create this with lumber?
THANKS SO MUCH.

I wouldn't think a vapor barrier or house wrap would be needed if you install siding over the aluminum.

You definetly need some type of overhang or flashing over the new siding to prevent moisture from getting behind it. I'm not sure how would be the best way to accomplish this. Where ever or how ever the overhang/flashing meet the rubber roof it will need to be sealed well to prevent future leaks.

Yes Id for sure put up vertical strapping.... nailers of 1X4. You have to let the siding float like. It sure expands. You will have to come off the roof with something to cover the top lock in strip edge for sure. So water cant get behind the siding.

Silicone?

Thank you both for the good ideas. I'll design an "eave" that will overhang the vinyl by about 6" out of some simple lumber and drip edge strips. I'll install that first. Then I'll seal the seam where the "eave" meets the rubber. Is a high quality silicone the proper sealent for this application?
THANKS.

I've never liked butting up to or overlaping [on the top] when extending a roof. If you can get some of the added roof under the rubber roof that would be ideal. I would think that G.E. silicone would be fine but it is best to get some flashing under the rubber roof if at all possible.
