The articles are well written, but if you're looking for a step by step primer on how to start with a bare exterior wall and put up siding, this is not the book for you. What it does do is give you several different contractors thoughts and ideas on how to put up siding.
Some of the information is transferable from one siding type to another, some is not and only applies to the siding being discussed in the article.
In the future, I will only buy Taunton books, specifically the By Pros for Pros series, that are written by a specific author, not one that lists editors.
It gives you a lot of details on exterior siding but doesn't spend much time talking about the most effecient way to do it. Not many tips for saving time or calculating waste or total material.
I don't regret getting this book, it gave me a starting point. Having moved from hardi-plank I wasn't totally prepared for wood siding with this book.
Still, for my money and time, this publisher and series gets my attention first time everytime.
