Foundation Covering

I have a cedar sided home and there is a space of 8-10 inches below the bottom of the cedar to the ground. The concrete foundation is exposed at this point and looks very unsightly! ( Aging aggregate, waterproofing and insulation)
Several years ago there was a fiberglass product that came in 8-10ft lengths, about 10" wide and 1/8" thick. The lengths were slipped under the wood on to the top of the foundation ( one edge along the length had a small lip) then secured to the foundation covering the concrete.

Is this product still made ? If so, where can I locate some? If not, any good recommendations for covering this area would be appreciated.

Got a picture?
Could just use Vinyl lumber. It comes in 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12" widths and up to 16' lengths if you go t a real lumber yard. It can be attached with Tap Con screws.

Thank you, I will do some research for a "real" lumber yard.

Any real siding supply should also have it.
The box stores do not carry the longer pieces from what I've seen because they deal more with DIY's with no way to get it home.

There are some mobile home underpinning products that sound similar to what you are describing.
btw - welcome to the forums!
