Vinyl siding light fixture mount


The size listed by home depot is incorrect.
With a 4 inch center hole, that product is about 6x6.

If this is a new installation, check out these:

You mount the block to the siding and then the fixture mounts to the block. No box needed.
Cannot do it that way because of the type of siding I have.

It's beaded siding, as far as I was told and can tell. MY contractor is (unavailable) to tell me more.

The Arlington boxes work with a wide variety of siding types.

Jim, I don't doubt that, but Home Depot, Lowe's or the local siding/roofing supplies don't carry anything that would fit beaded siding that would go on after the siding is already up. If you can find a specific Arlington Box that goes with Beaded Siding, I'm all ears.

Look in the link above. The flanges can be removed if you need to retrofit.
