Hello,

We are currently under contract on a house, and have noticed a glaring issue on the front porch. They previous homeowner/DIYr/contractor installed siding that is contact with porch. It even appears they have caulked the porch to the bottom of the lowest portion of shingles (obvious water damage lol).

As for repairing this, from what I gather, remove lower row of siding, and assess for more water damage.

Hoping to remove, place some paper, sill, and place a PVC trim board.

Any insight or suggestions are welcome. No stranger to this sort of work, but definitely not a subject matter expert.

I would recommend the same thing.

If we are going to do this ourselves, let's assess the water damage first to see what we are getting into.

Maybe, you can share a picture of the damage and we can share more ideas
