Question where do i buy old Masonite siding

I need the 12" dutch lap kind to do some repairs on my old house. going to get it sided in the future, just a cosmetic fix until then. a couple of the boards are decayed beyond staying together and on the house and the neighbors are getting worried.

or if you have any other ideas, they are welcome, too. want it to match and not be too much work as i am just going to get it redone. recycled ideas a plus!

I don't think that they make it anymore.
Maybe you can find some MDF and cut some to match. Or find a house with it on it being resided, and get some there.
Good Luck!

Do any of the manufacturers of cement fiberboard siding make a direct replacement for that? Might be something to look into.

I know that they make matching cement fiber siding that looks exactly like the old asbestos siding, but I've never seen any that matches hardboard.
Could be though, if there's a demand for it.

My neighbor installed some to match his old wood siding, its about 6", just not sure if they make the 12" variety. The 12" would be the same as the old redwood siding they used back in the 50's or so.

thanks a lot!! i'll let you know what i come up with. before i checked back here, i was thinking of getting a 4 x 8 piece of masonite board and cutting it to match, but i'll check into the other options first.

now that i have pulled off the rotten masonite siding, the rest of the many layers of various stuff is all rotten, too, so i don't know whether to just cover it up until spring or get the thing sided like i should have some years ago.

UPDATE:

For the time being, I used inexpensive hardboard, 2 x 4 for $2.50. Cut it in half longways and had two panels of 1 x 4 that I could manueuver into the spots where the masonite had totally rotted away. Nailed it up and painted it. Total cost, $5. I think it should hold until the real siding begins.

P.s. It looks really great in the dark!

You should check at Home Depot. Ask for SKU 28530312. That is "12 inch Hardboard Triple 16 foot" siding (like masonite) with a dutch cove. Just went through that problem this fall. It is a bit pricey, but may be what you are looking for. Good luck.

El Lupe, welcome to the forums! The post you are responding to is 5 years old. Hopefully they have it fixed. Good information, though. Most masonite has the rounded bead bottom and is very difficult (impossible) to find.
