    Edit: Why aren't my images appearing? I used the img feature, just right of the smileys feature on the top doc formatting bar.


    Avid Googler & recent older home owner here.
    I'm overwhelmed with unfamiliarity with how to combat some outdoor siding work.


    I appreciate:
    • replacement parts/tools needed in the images to be identified
    • relevant how-to website addresses (URLs) to help me research
    • insights, tips, tricks, risks

    Bottom line: I need some of your help if you're familiar with the solution!
    Feel free to just pick one or several or none of the things to give some tips on.​

    Thank you for your invaluable time!
    see below​


    Major tools in possession:​
    • Oscillating multi-tool​
    • Insulating foam sealant​


    I'll update the latest solution for ea. project per thread readers' simplicity.

    high moisture exposure

    problem: wood is rotting, soft to touch in rotted areas.​

    At the bottom of the text box you'll see a tab "Upload A File" use this to attach photos. Then, click on "Full Image" option Capture+_2019-04-14-13-31-17.png
