Hi folks,

Single female homeowner here with a question about vinyl siding my home..

Currently I have wood shingles on the house (a small cape cod style home). The shingles on part of the home are cracked and worn so instead of painting again I'd like to just to put vinyl siding on the house.

I have had several siding companies at the house for estimates, some want to remove the existing shingles, some don't. I realize there are labor costs involved to remove the shingles but the estimates are not bad.

I have been told that removing the shingles would look better.

I am confused.....Can someone tell me what I should do.....
