Hi hello and thank you for joining our How-to Community.

 

Easiest and only :) way to install vinyl siding over the cinder block wall is to nail on something called furring strips.

Furring strips are basically 1x3 or 1x4 strip of wood that are vertically nailed every 16 inches, on center ,using masonry or concrete nails.

You want to nails these in to the block joint not the block itself. Actual sizeof our 1x lumber is ¾ 's– this said you can also take an advantage of the hollow space and insulate the walls with the rigid closed cell insulation.

Hope this helps and please do not hesitate to post back with any additional questions you may have.
