In respect to this, how wide is vinyl J channel?
Secondly, what size J channel do I need? Most vinyl siding manufacturers make two or three sizes of J-channel. For vertical siding, these channels typically have openings of 3/8 inch to 1/2 inch to receive siding panels and soffit materials. For horizontal siding, J-channels with openings of 3/4 inch to 1 inch are commonly used.
Also asked, can you put window trim over siding?
Stephen, I have always butted the siding to the window frame, run the trim over the siding and then caulked the edge which seals the gaps. This provides the best waterproofing IMHO. Cut a rabbet into the trim piece and your siding tucks behind the trim, and you also get a nice fit to the window.
How do you stagger vinyl siding?
Stagger the siding end laps so that no two courses (rows of panels) are aligned vertically, unless separated by at least three courses. Always overlap joints away from entrances and/or away from the point of greatest traffic.
