HASH(0xb335fda4) out of 5 stars Been there, read that Aug. 22 2005
By Brian Walls - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I gave this book three stars because it is basically a rehash of articles that have appeared in Fine Homebuilding in the past. No wait, it's not a rehash, it's exact copies of articles that have appeared in Fine Homebuilding in the past. Maybe they said that in the description and I just missed it, but as a religious reader of FHB, I felt a little cheated. If you don't read FHB on a regular basis, bump the review up to 4 1/2 stars.

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.

HASH(0xb2d07dc8) out of 5 stars Well written, easy read. Missing some details Oct. 17 2004
By John T. Gordon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I picked this up when I was starting to do a cedar lap siding job and I wanted to get some tips. The book is very well written as are all the (For Pros By Pros) series of books seem to be.

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.

I have a labor of love that I may never finish but this book set me off on the right path. For novice this book really gives good insight in plain language.

HASH(0xb2ba65e8) out of 5 stars Good general review of siding installation principles with excellent details of special projects July 7 2009
By W. J. Hornby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Good review of general principles for installation of many different exterior siding materials, with associated trim moldings to add the professional touch to your project. Very fine examples of specialty work by excellent craftman provides good examples of specific regional methods and styles. Although the publishers promote the theme of "By Pros For Pros" as an amateur who came to the book looking for some specific guidance and clues on better ways to build a mousetrap (so-to-speak) I was not disapointed. Some projects are a bit esoteric and are fine examples of very specific exterior craftsmanship better left as a magaizine article with a reference in a periodic index instead of a chapter in a survey book on exterior finish work.

Still, for my money and time, this publisher and series gets my attention first time everytime.

This book centers around vinyl which was not my main project. Many things translated to my hardie board project. FUN
