Siding in Maryland?

cfmuehling(7b DC/MD burbs)September 14, 2006

Ok, humor me.

I wasn't sure where to ask this question, so since we're remodeling everything (read: rebuilding) and my gardens surround my house, which will be resided, I thought this sneak in under the wire! Plus, I know you guys are in my area.

I live smack dab between Washington, DC and Annapolis in Maryland. I found the siding I wanted, but it happened to be on someone's house and they weren't hip to parting with it. When I knocked, bless their hearts, they not only gave me the paint numbers (their brick was painted) they gave me the paint samples. They'd matched the paint to existing siding when they moved in.

Now, I'm sure siding colors go in and out of fashion just like anything else. However, I know I should be able to get closer than Home Depot and Lowe's offerings. But where?

Does anyone know where one goes to find siding if it's not these mega-stores? (I've been to Ted Lansing and no match.) I'd appreciate any suggestions and have truck, will drive!

I came across this site the other day, for building materials in DC/MD. I haven't checked it out yet, but maybe it will help!
Or, you might want to place a similar posting on Craigslist. There is a lot of DC/MD/VA traffic there. Good luck!! Christy

I realize you are looking for a local recommendation, but internet searches to get siding brands and colors would be the way I would go about this, then I would look for a local dealer. For example, I found CertainTeed at, and they have an on-line color chart that will tell you if they have something similar to what you are looking for. Here is a link that will take you to the color chart.

I hope you're planning on getting some nice HOT PINK siding.
