Need Help on Problem Area Outside on Deck Sign In/Join 
posted
We are getting ready to close up a single walk out door on our deck and install a sliding door in another location where we currently have a double window. We are unable to match the vinyl siding on our house and need to cover up the area where the walkout door is being taken out. What can we do in this area since we cannot match the vinyl siding to patch the area? The walkout door we need to cover is very near the stairs to the yard so not much room to come out from the house very far with anything. Tried to upload photo but it wouldn't take it.

Without seeing the exterior of your home, it is difficult to give you good advice. Could you do some kind of wainscoting treatment with stacked stone or brick.

Here is another example. If you can show us pictures, it would help immensely.

A pic will reap a thousand words Wink That being said, repeating an element somewhere on the house such as stone, brick or stucco will make the area look more intentional and cohesive even if it is a chimney.
