Vinyl siding


Was wondering if anyone can help, i have a house that was probably sided in the 80's. I took a window out while remodeling the kitchen and am gaving a hard time finding the same size. Its about an 1-1/2 higher. I was gonna put new siding on the bottom couple rows on the side of the house you cant see at all. And you the old stuff to cover the window. Will it work? Any suggestions?

I'm confused, are you trying to remove the window and leave it out, or remove and replace it with a new one?

If your trying to install a new window you should have taken your rough opening size measurements and ordered a new made to size window. Almost all new vinyl windows are made to order. In about 2 weeks you would have a new window that would just slide in place.

Sorry, i removed the window completely. Im having a problem matching old vinyl siding with new siding to cover where the window was. The old siding is about an 1-1/2 higher than the new siding (which i have quite a bit of since i built a new garage last year)

Post a picture.
Trying to figure out how the new and old siding are that far off if you installed the correct exposure siding.
I can see the color not matching.
Vinyl siding comes in a lot of differant exposures and profiles.
