Remove mounting block for lighting

by Tom
I need to replace the mounting block from my current outdoor lights with a larger one. The block seems to be built right into the siding and was done at the same time as the siding. How to I best go about removing and replacing it?
If I have to remove some siding around it, I'll need some pointers on how that would be done as well.

  • What type of siding are you talking about. Vinyl siding has pre-made vinyl fillers that only come in one size. With wood siding clapboard style you would need to use a roto-zip saw and cut out the wood to fit a larger mounting block in the siding. Can you provide a photo of the current block and provide some info on how much larger you want to go?
