    Default Question about vinyl siding installation

    Hey guys,


    i'm new to the forum and to renovation in general, so let me know if i posted my question in the wrong category. My mom needs to change the vinyl siding on the balcony shown in the picture. I've never done something like this before but it seems pretty reasonnable. My only concern is the downward angle circled in red. You can find easily how to install vinyl siding when there is an upward angle, but i've found nothing for that type of installation. How should i proceed?

    Being primarily Australian based members there may not be too many people familiar with the products available in your location.
    I would look at the products available in your part of the world and the manufacturers installation instructions for those products.

    If this was the only part of the house with vertical cladding, I'd think about switching to horizontal. Might need some short vertical studs. Not a hard job but the height may complicate things

    I'm indeed planning on switching to horizontal cladding! I was mainly wondering about the way to proceed on the side with dthe downward angle

    Again refer to the installation manual for the product you will be using, but in the absence of a brand or product here is some installation instructions I found via Google:

    I would imagine the flashing detail to the roof would be something like figure 42 on page 23
