How to extend vinyl siding?

I had a deck removed from the front of my house. Now the vinyl siding does not meet the masonry foundation in about two (2) - 4 ft x 1 ft areas. I had saved a few pieces of vinyl and want to cover the newly exposed areas. How do I “weave it in” to the old so that it doesn’t look like patch.

    Some of the pieces can be cut into different lengths to prevent the boxed in patch. Some of the already longer installed pieces can be moved to work in with smaller pieces. There is a tool for getting under the edges of the vinyl or use a metal scrapper tool.

    The siding should have a nailing strip at the top edge. If you lift the bottom of the already installed siding, then slip the new piece in that should get it.
