    Default Repairing sheathing due to settling of house

    My house has settled and it caused the carsiding sheathing to buckle at the bottom near the foundation. It's at the most 2 feet in width by maybe 1 foot in height. At the corner of the house. Can I safely cut this sheathing and replace it, or will my house collapse? Do I need to provide some support while I do the work? Better yet, who could I hire to do this for me?

    Your last sentence is your best answer. While the work is easy, like anything you need to understand what you're doing. The real problem here might be the settling and that needs to be looked into carefully or your repairs may be for naught.
