    Siding too low

    It seems like it is basically compressed cardboard. I'm not sure if it is technically hardi board. I doubt it though as the house is from '77. I'm not sure how much the siding overlaps the foundation, but I was thinking trimming the siding back might be effective. It is difficult to lower the...

    Siding too low

    Warped sliding door

    Hi, I have a vinyl sliding door that has bowed out and created a large gap on the vertical edge. I'm wondering if there is any way to fix it? Yes, I'm aware that it probably is just time to replace the door, but while I build a budget for that, is there any way to temporarily fix this gap so my...
