Damaged Siding


I'm looking to replace some damaged pieces of siding that were originally installed in 2009. The siding installed is Variform by Ply Gem. TimberOak ascent. The color is Appalachian Chestnut. The profile is D5 traditional. Unfortunately it was discontinued around 2010 or 11.
I have a sample of Georgia Pacific Cedar Lane (Chestnut) from 2011 and it's a perfect match. Unfortunately it was also discontinued. I figure the only way I'm going to find this is if someone has some laying in their warehouse or garage. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Damaged Siding


If you come up empty handed from your search, consider removing some un-damaged siding from the least visible part of your house and putting it in the damaged area.

Or, if the damaged section is on a gable, consider replacing just the gable end area with vinly shake siding or even cedar shake. Separated with a 1x6 cedar trim board.... Just spitballin' here

Re: Damaged Siding


Thanks,,, I was thinking about shake at the entrance. It's a split so the entrance foyer is recessed. I'm going to run that by the homeowner tomorrow. I just thought replacing one pc in the second course would be easier. lol

Re: Damaged Siding


Well of course it would, if you can find the matching stuff. I was just throwing out alternatives I've done in the past in case you couldn't find it

Re: Damaged Siding


If you can get near the same locking profile, replace with any color. Go to Sherwin Williams get a paint match. Can't tell the difference most times. Also a paint match will look better than the new pc. New siding of the same will stand out as it's not faded.

If you don't have a good fit / locking profile take any D5 that fits. Cut the top nail bead off. Overlay right on to the old siding. Then do the paint match.

Re: Damaged Siding


Thanks Onmyway, I think we're going to go with vinyl shake at the entrance. This way we should have some extra for any future damage. Plus fade won't be an issue thanks Wefix.
