Time to try to identify some vinyl siding again....

Hello everyone. I've got vinyl siding that I am trying to figure out who made in hopes that the same company made the J channel trim. I know the length is 12' long so maybe this a hint. Beyond that I'd ask that you look at the pictures and tell me what you think. Even if I can narrow it down I may be able to find some local businesses to get more details.

Quite a few pics and more hints here
Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forums.

That's quite a tall order in trying to recognize the manufacturer of that siding.

Two things come to mind.

Check the back for any kind of manufacturers id or check with local supply houses. Usually the siding is purchased from a local distributor.

Yep I checked for all that and not a thing. The house is about 12 years old now. Going to hit up one of the big local suppliers and go from there. Not holding any great hope but just looking for some educated guesses. My education on this stuff is all that I've learned in the last two weeks.

Thanks!

Basically J channel is generic unless it matches your color. Only size needs to be considered. HOWEVER, a good supply house should be able to give you a pretty good match regardless of the original manufacturer. Our local vinyl supplier can identify most siding as you walk in the door, but he's been doing it forever. Some he will have to order, but in trim, if the size is right, there's little difference.

Just looks like regular D-5 siding to me.
I often times have to use a different brand to make repairs or when adding an addition and more often then not it works out fine and still locks in place and looks the same.
J moulding can come in matte or a wood grained look as long as you get the same finish and the right size any brand will work.
I mainly use 5/8 J. It needs room for the siding to be able to expand and contract.
