[quote=tomstruble;407161]Susan as long as you have a few pieces save them [store them flat] but don't go buy a box, certainteed's siding stays very consistent over the years,if you ever need that much siding in the future just buy more then
Sorry to differ,
but I hung a lot of certainteed siding over the years, including my own house. Certainteed and the other vinyl manufacturers change some of their colors out every few years. Sometimes it is a subtle shade change, other times they drop a color all together. I used a light gray on my house that was a popular color. The following year when I built my shop next door, they dropped the color. I was lucky enough to find a local company that had bought the remaining inventory and I actually paid a lot less for it. I have a couple of boxes (4 square) sitting upstairs in my shop just for safe keeping in case I need it.
I also had the same thing happen on Certainteed's deck materials. I needed a handful of pieces to finish up my mothers stairs on her deck I built. It took me awhile to do these stairs as I built the main section in my shop and it was too heavy to carry by hand. Had to wait for the weather and get my cousin over with a mini excavotor to haul it and lower it in place. Sure enough, they discontinued the material. I tracked some down about two hours away in Toledo at a wholesale distributor. I had to drive up and get it, but I was lucky enough to find it. Needless to say, I am not a big certainteed fan anymore.
Siding isn't that expensive. I would at least keep a square around for the future.
