Vinyl siding is a very durable and flexible product, but is can still get damaged. A branch falling from a tree or an errant baseball, or wind can dent or crack the siding on your home.
Replacing a piece of vinyl siding is about the easiest of sidings to repair, even in the middle of a wall. Vinyl siding is made where the pieces interlock vertically across the wall. Because they are flexible they can be separated from each other without damaging them, making them easy to remove and replace.
It is best to do these repair during warmer weather as the vinyl does get brittle when it gets cold.
If you are fortunate to have some spare pieces around you can replace the damaged section easily and no one will be able to tell. If you don’t have a matching piece, and can’t get the color or style you need, you can use a piece from an area that is not seen and use a piece that is close in color in the unseen area. We have even changed a whole backside of a garage with a different color, so we could use the matching material on the front of the house.
