I've got some repair work to do that involves removing the bottom 4 or 5 feet of vinyl siding. I think, typically, work would start from the bottom and work up, and if I was done for the day all the pieces would be interlocked and the top edge would be nailed, so no problems walking away overnight.
In my case, I've got to split the siding and strip down, and this means the bottom edge of the siding is now free to flap about when the (strong) winds come in tonight.
How do I prevent the siding from getting damaged? I was thinking I could install a starter strip and re-fasten the siding to that, but it seems like an awful lot of work for a relatively short period of time. If that's the answer though that's fine; I'm just looking to see how this scenario would normally be handled.
