I have to replace a few panels of cedar wood siding before I paint. How the
heck do I remove them? It seems each layer is held on by the layer above!
Are there any websites with pictures you can link me to DIY? Thanks!
Just saw it on This Old House. There is a tool that looks like a T . You
slide it up under the shingle you want to remove and snag a nail that holds
the shingle on. Then you hit it with a hammer and it will pull the nail
If the siding was installed properly, the nails on the overlap should not be
penetrating both boards. In other words, if you pry the nails loose on the
face of the board(s) you wish to replace, the board should simply pull free
from underneath the siding board above.
Cedar siding is installed this way so the board is free to expand and
contract across it's width without splitting.
