Looking for Vinyl Siding

Some 15/20 years ago Sears installed Salmon Pink vinyl siding on my home. There is a bottom row that has many holes in it from the gardener weed eating the edge area along the house. I have been trying to find siding that I can purchase to replace it but haven't been successful in locating any the same or similar color. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

Welcome to the forums!

You won't find a match, even if you did find the same color/style the siding above it would have faded enough over the yrs for there to be a significant change in color.

I'd find vinyl in the same style, install it and then paint it to match the rest.

A generic color/style is possible, something that old, that color, your just not going to find it.

A further tip, find a style that looks close but instead of replacing the one or two pieces, find an out of the way section and replace & paint everything, then use those pieces to patch.

Overall it will look better because the color will be an issue to match!

If it's low enough that someone could hit it with a trimmer, it was installed to low in the first place.
It should have been no closer then 6" to grade.
What I've done in the past when I have to deal with this, is remove and replace it with PVC lumber and a piece of Z molding so it never happens again.

Be sure that it is warm day when you replace/fix this.
Siding does get a little brittle with age.

Another possibility is to replace the bottom coarse with white or grey.
Since the odds of matching the color is slim a contrasting color may look better.

Sears just hired contractors to put up siding, so the siding could literally be almost any brand imaginable. And there is no way for us to help you locate siding with such vague info. And even if you did locate the exact siding, it won't match as the others have already pointed out.
