old t-111 siding repair/replace?
We are selling our home and our realtor told us we needed to repair/replace some siding damaged by the sprinklers in order for it to pass pest inspection etc. It's kind of curling up and crumbling. We got an estimate but it was so much it would eat all our profit, so we are going to try and fix it ourselves. We've had many people tell us just put up new t-11 in the bad spots even though they dont sell the same stuff to match. Or to just cut off the 8 inches or so that is bad and put up a trim board. So we tried this on the back side (the worst spot with some warping) but now wonder if it's really the right way to do this. Not trying to do a shoddy job, but we do want the $ to buy another home. Whats a good way to repair this and how bad is it to paint in November?
