I recently tore off a 35-year-old 3-layer shingle hip roof in MA. I
put down new drip edges, ice/water shield along roof edges, valleys
and hips, 30-lb tar paper, new flashings along dormer sidewalls and
30-year architectural shingles.
I had to take off all the dormer siding (vinyl siding, flimsy 1/4"
styrofoam insulation and old shingles) to properly remove decayed
flashing and properly install new flashing. Now I need to re-side the
They are sided with 1x's of various widths...all in ok shape. I would
like to put some foamboard insulation down prior to putting on new
siding. What would be the proper materials...and the proper
installation sequence? Tarpaper/Tyvek...Foamboard...Siding?
Second Question: If I install foamboard, how do I install it around
the storm windows? Do I "box" in the storms with the combined
foamboard and new siding? How do I avoid having exposed foamboard on
the interior dimensions of the window "box?" Not sure if I worded this
Last Question: Rake boards along dormer side following roofline...Yes
or No? I see a lot of dormer siding in water-decayed shape around here
due to bad spacing between siding application and roofline. Should I
just allow proper spacing for water runoff and no rake board? Or
install rakeboard with proper runoff spacing?
Thanks very much!
