    Question Covering old aluminum siding

    I am revamping my old house. It has aluminum siding with a felt backing. I want to put on new vinyl siding. Do I need to tear of the old or can I cover it with the vinyl?

    pull it off and take it to the scrap yard you will get a couple hundred bucks for it. it would be very hard to install new siding over the old alum anyway I am sure it could be done but it would be a real pain

    In fact, I think if you offered the siding as an emolument, someone would remove it just for the scrap value, saving you a whole step in the process.
