Odd Size Siding

I need to replace some wood siding that is a true 6" x 1/2" size (tapered), and very hard to find. (About 4 1/2" is exposed). Any tips where to look?
If I can find it, it will have to be painted to match--does it have to be sealed as well as primed before the paint goes on?

Terry:

Unfortunately, a lot of the name chain building centers have the attitude "If we don't stock it, it doesn't exist."

I would suggest talking with a LOCAL building supply. The siding is not that uncommon - when I worked for a building supply in Charlottesville, Va. some years agao we routinely ordered in all sorts of stuff (including the siding you mentioned) for special orders - something that many of the 'Name' stores don't.

It's obvious that some one local had it or got it at one time or another or your house wouldn't have it.

4 1/2" exposed wood siding is very common. It is usually cedar. Just did a whole house with it. Not too,expensive and yes needs priming before you paint. Also caulk all corners.
