Aluminum Siding

Am planning on installing aluminum facias and soffits this spring; am in the planning stage right now. I know the basics of installation, but am unclear on some of the details. Does someone have a link to a web site for this? Went to Home Depot this AM, but they had no books. Thanks in advance.

Aluminum Siding

I have some instruction sheets that I got from Home Depot by the materials that show some of the basics. These are the links on the ones I could find, I have misplaced at least one other.

Aluminum Siding

Go to google and look for vinyl siding installation. There is alot of info on the Certainteed site.

Aluminum Siding

I agree with mrmojo about doing a search on Google or other favorite search engine for installation tips. mrmojo, Certainteed, I believe, does not manufacture aluminum siding, rather vinyl. Are you recommending vinyl over aluminum? If so, why?

Thanks again to all; think I have what I need.

BTW, I unintentionally mislead people with my subject (aluminum siding); I meant to say facia and soffit. I am using aluminum facia and soffit, but I am planning on using fiber-cement siding. I used fiber-cement on a 3 season porch a couple years ago as an experiment and liked it a lot. Anyone have any long term experience with this type siding?
