    Question Drywall/Sheetrock on aluminum siding in Patio

    Recently, I purchased old home which has covered Patio/Sunroom. One internal wall of Patio has aluminum siding. What are my options to cover this siding? I spoke to contractor who indicated that instead of removing the siding, he would put drywall/Sheetrock on the top of the siding. I will really appreciate your feedback/experience.
    Thanks

    if he goes over the old siding he will have to install 1x4 strapping first so the drywall will lay flat otherwise if he screws the drywall to a low point the screw will pull right through the paper or you will get a uneven surface on the drywall.
    fire up the saw and make some dust

    Better yet remove the siding then install the sheetrock. Maybe even use exterior sheetrock.
