Replacing old siding panels


Does anyone have any ideas how I can best fix these two problem areas with the siding. I have not been able to find any siding that matches these exactly, the siding is probably from the 60's. I am selling the house to a buyer with an FHA loan and this must be fixed to complete the sale. Thanks for any help.

What material are these panel made from? Are these the asphalt impregnated fiberboard with a granular surface?

Ayuh,... Probably the cleanest, easiest, cheapest fix would be to tastefully cover over that with another type of material,...
Contrasting color flashing maybe,..??

You might salvage some of the lower material that's there to fix some of the higher up stuff, to in effect lower the new border area...

Insulbrick


It is called Insulbrick, some people call it ghetto brick. It is a 2x4 panel, I'd like to buy some replacement pieces that would fit neatly in there. Does anyone know where I can find some Insulbrick?

It is very doubtful there are any companies making this product anymore.
