Liquid vinyl siding

My house has a deck on one side that was put on 30 years ago when they just lag-screwed it onto the siding. Over the years water has seeped through the siding at that point, and apparently run down to cause rotting in the siding in various places below. Fortunately the studs, etc., seem to be ok at this point.

I'm told that to pull the deck away from the house and replace the siding, etc.; then properly reattach the deck and flash it, would run upwards of $15,000.

I wondered about prepping everything by patching bad spots in the existing siding; then having liquid vinyl siding applied. Have you had much experience with liquid vinyl siding, and do you think this might be a good option?

I've never heard of liquid vinyl siding before although I have painted vinyl siding.
Vinyl siding is never completely waterproof and replies on the house wrap or tar paper behind it to keep the house dry. There shouldn't be vinyl siding between the deck joists and the house. Flashing is used to keep water from getting in.

his spray-on PVC finish
There was a recent similar past about some chemical that "revived" faded siding. The company even posted their response!

Either way this is just something that is meant to improve the finish not seal anything!

I'm not sure how you can have "...rotting in the siding in various places below" and not have some structural damage. I would remove the deck and siding to give the house a good inspection looking for rot in the rim joist and bottom of the wall studs.
