How to repair cracked and broken vinyl siding?

by Alane

Our house was sided 24 years ago. There are spots that have broken or cracked. I would like to know how to repair vinyl siding instead of replacing it?

    You should be able to take the piece off, and take it to a big box diy store..see if they can get you a close match. its a pretty common color, it just s hangs in place, shouldn’t be nailed down.

    I have a mobile home with skirting, (similar material to your siding). It had some same sized holes in it. I covered them with gorilla tape that I painted white. It won't show from the street and it will keep bugs out until you can replace the pieces.

    I had a home that was covered in white vinyl, that I knocked holes in with rocks thrown up by the lawn mower. I just filled with white exterior caulk.
