fall is coming and the cheap T-11 siding on my garage has dissolved along the bottom just below and above the sill pate on both sides - it will do the same in the front shortly as the siding comes low to the ground because the foundation is non existent on the front of a garage, and only a few inches on the sides - yikes.
I'm a 57 yr.old woman so the answers need to be DIY :)
I would like to cut off the siding by 4' up (there are a couple of holes) and replace with a water proof and price friendly material. The walls are open 2x4 studs on 24" centers (oh the lingo I pick up around here :)
Q - Is there a way to better seal T-111 so it can repel water? Use primer on the sides and inside is what a guy at homedepot said he did....
Prince is an issue as the side walls are both 26' feet, and the front is 32'.
One other thing - the side that is the worst is the west - setting sun side.
Thank you for all you wisdom and ideas,
