Vinyl triple 2.5" siding availability?

Long story short, i did a renovation which included removing a bay window. i need more vinyl siding but my contractor is now telling me the siding i have is not made anymore. it is triple 2.5" made by Nantucket. the color is clay.

i now know that Nantucket is kaput, are there any other options?

Welcome to the forums!

If you can find the same style you could paint it if the color doesn't match. Is it feasible to steal the siding from another area and then reside that area with new? The siding guys should be along later with more/better info.

thanks for the welcome.

i'm being told that triple 2.5 isn't made anymore, so it's a fitment issue, not so much the color yet. i'm hearing the siding is 30 years old. i just dumped tens of thousands of dollars in to a new kitchen, dining room, living room and bathroom renovation so i'm in a tough spot. can't do the whole house at this point. can i get siding in this size?

The closet thing you will find will likely be Mastic t-lok Barkwood triple 2 2/3. I dont think there is such a thing as triple 2.5.

Measure across 3 laps and tell us the total span on one piece. Either way it wont match exactly so you will be forced to completely side one side of the house... maybe scavange siding from some areas for the sake of others.

Yes, it's triple 2 2/3..... problem is that yours is smooth, and you won't find that anymore. The Barkwood is the right size but it's woodgrain.

Take a sample and go to some real siding supply companies do not waste your time at the box stores.
If yours is smooth it's called remodeling siding.
I often spend more time trying to match up siding and shingles then it takes to do the real job.
