What should I use to seal around my home's windows?

The vinyl siding on my house was not properly installed (no insulating board, no house wrap, no caulking). I can now see exposed plywood sheathing in a large gap between the edge of the siding panel and the edge of the vinyl window. How can I seal this gap around the windows so that it is water proof, but still allows for the expansion/contraction of the vinyl siding panel?? Thanks in advance.

Painting Vinyl Siding, or Not

I don't like the vinyl siding color on the four-year old house we bought recently. I suggested painting it.

I don't want to ruin the siding.

Nice vinyl siding or Hardie board siding, which is better?

I am looking to put new siding on. I live in the mid-west and need something good for adverse conditions and so on. I know that vinyl has certain advantages, like no painting and durability. I am also looking at Hardie plank - which does require painting. Is what better than the other in my climate? What about the cost of vinyl versus hardie?

What are my options for painting exterior vinyl siding?

I was thinking of painting my now discolored vinyl siding that has weathered for the last 20 years - as opposed to replacement. There has been no leaks and other than discoloration, the material has no cracks and is still very pliable. One of my friends told me about Moorlife Acrylic Flat Paint N105 as an option which can be tinted color-match.

Older Vinyl Siding Replacement

I have some older vinyl siding and want to replace the corners with accents. I have been to local stores and found that the corners are a one piece unit. My corners are three pieces.

So have you heard of this way and where can I find replacements, if they are still available?
