The previous owner in my house has mulch touching the siding for sometime (I assume).

enter image description here

You can see the bottom 2 inches rotting.

I have done some reading and people either replace the siding or put wood putty and seal it. The section is running only about 5-6 feet.

My questions are:

  1. This is an old house and I am not sure if I can find a siding that is similar pattern like existing. Is it worth it to cut and replace with new siding in the bottom part (maybe 6")? Notice it is slopping up so the cut will be tricky.

  2. If I use wood putty, any recommendation on type/brand and how to apply it effectively?
