I have cause to remove aluminum siding from a house for termite repair and want to mark it so as to put the pieces back in the same order. What can I mark the face with? It has a backing of fiberous board-so that's out. Only other option that comes to mind is tagging.

blue tape on both sides of the nailing hem compressed at nail holes...concerned WD40 may effect the paint (?)

Sharpie... Write right on the nail hem (or on the lap)

Just stack and store in order (then don't knock over the pile:laughing:)

today was the first time I had every taken down aluminum siding...it's a pretty tough job but the sheathing was homosote, so there was 1/2" less of nail to keep it on. Ended up using a sharpie on the nail hem - TQ wins the prize!

When I started this thread, I was thinking of the tag system one might do when disassembling a barn to be moved...now that's a lot of parts.
