Several years ago, when I replaced the door, I did not put a door with a lite on the side. This gave me 18” more for the kitchen. I had to create a faux panel because I did not have the siding to make it look good.

Now, it was time to upgrade the window and either use a window replacement (total crap) or replace the window. I elected to replace the window and all of the siding, and find out why my kitchen and basement were always cold in the winter. It turns out that there was no insulation of any kind under some of the aluminum siding.

The first picture is several years ago with the panel. Yes the original door was about an inch shorter and it made things interesting to replace the door (remodel Pain In The A).

This next picture shows the siding off, the window removed.

This picture shows the new window.

The final picture shows everything completed. I did not get a picture that shows the additional sheet insulation and Tyvek installed under the the new vinyl siding.

A very busy 3 days from start to finish.

Looks good to me. I haven’t done much siding, but think it looks good.

I have not done much siding either. Last time I did any siding were cedar shakes 40 years ago – and that was a whole different.

The biggest differences are the window – much better window and now it has weather proofing around the frame and insulation over the Thermo-ply (which is junk), covered with Tyvek.
