I am trying to match our current siding after putting on an addition.  I need 8 inch, single, vinyl siding in a cream/off-white.  Apparently Certenteed only has white.  Anyone know where I can get this?

Matching vinyl siding can be a real pain but if you are persistent you can find a good match.  You can basically do the same thing the Pro's usually end up doing and that is:

  • Remove a piece of the vinyl siding you want to replace and look for any identifying numbers or marks.  (big pieces, like several feet, work best for this step).
  • Remove a smaller piece for style, size and color matching.  Usually something around 12″ works great.
  • Break out the Phone Book and/or Online search for "vinyl siding materials", "vinyl siding suppliers", "vinyl siding manufacturers", and whatever else you can think of.  Lumber yards & building supply stores often do carry vinyl siding.  The goal here is to obtain a list of where you can buy vinyl siding in your area.
  • Hit the pavement:  Take your sample and your list of potential places the vinyl siding you are looking for might be found and see if you can find a match.

SO … as you can see … trying to find matching vinyl siding CAN be a pain but it's not impossible.  Sometimes you'll find a match on your first try and other times you'll need to be a little more determined.


Hind Sight is 20/20

Our BEST ADVICE … IF YOU GET VINYL SIDING INSTALLED on your home … make sure … the contractor leaves a few extra peices of vinyl siding and trim in case you need a few pieces later on.  Store it flat & protected.  Most top quality contractors will recommend this and/or just automatically provide this for you.  Hope this helps you!Laugh

To directly answer your question, there are only a few companies that still offer the single 8″ panel, let alone in any color but white. Having said I know of a company that offers it in several colors. If you are still in need of these panels, Contact me at Shelby Vinyl Prioducts Co.
