My porch has siding all along it, white... sort of. It's dented and looks like shit. I think this is going to be my first exterior improvement purchase. I'm just talking about the part below the pillars, and provide the 'hiding spot' on the porch, I want to replace that with something durable. Would the same type of siding be the best bet? Or give me some ideas on what I could do. I'd just paint the things, but they look like shit when you're standing right next to them. And yes, eventually the house will get painted another color. I already switched out the mailbox, and I'm going to go look for new light fixtures in the next few months.
