So our house was built in the early 80's, from the looks of the paneling around the window it has only been repaired never replaced with anything long lasting. So since its all wood framing and paneling, im going to replace everything with hardi and make sure that everything else is in good within the framing. My question is, is there anything I should upgrade while I have the paneling off and framing exposed for the install?
Is there any sheathing I need to put in place, should there be plywood on the framing before the new siding goes up?
Ill try to take a pic of the setup before anything is removed.
I just want to make sure that I fix and improve everything while im there..
