Hello tipotts.  Welcome to the Community!


Gray siding should not be a problem to find.

James Hardie siding is available in gray in all markets, and while the brand of vinyl siding varies by area, gray is a very common color.

You can either have it installed by calling 1-877-941-8775 or stop by your local Home Depot store.

Siding can be special ordered at the store for DIY customers as well as contractors.  See a Pro Desk associate at the store for more information.
