A contractor just replaced some siding for me by my back steps. I'm about to paint the whole exterior of the house, including the new siding, but the new stuff wasn't even pre-primed before installation and is now between stairs and flashing, and completely inaccessible.
Besides getting them to rip it out, and then prime and paint before installation, any suggestions on what to do?
Should I caulk along the top side of the flashing? Will that unprimed siding below the flashing just rot out quickly? (I'm in a wet area, that's the north side of the house).
