Cedar Siding Gap

1690 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  corin99
Hi...I'm replacing some warped pieces of lapped cedar siding and have found two pieces with about a 1" horizontal gap between them. Instead of being overlapped, they were nailed at both the top and bottom of each piece. It's not in a very visible location, on the side of the house on the second story, so I guess someone just took a shortcut. Of course, they have now cracked and need replacement. The pieces are only about 6' long.

I'm not sure how to deal with this. I thought about cutting a mini-lap piece, but that would probably just warp and look odd. Any ideas?

Well, I'd much rather not replace all the other boards all the way up to the top as they are in good condition and it would be a lot of extra work. I'm calling around to see if I can find some 10" wide siding, as the existing are 8".
