Vinyl Siding J channel repair

Posted by claga (My Page) on

A small 3 inch piece from the front edge of J channel that meets the riser/kick plate under the patio door broke off while I was shoveling snow from the deck.
Can it be glued back on?
If so what is the recommended adhesive?

I would silicone a piece of vinyl or plastic to the back of the channel which spanned both sides.

thank you for your response.
how many mils. thick would you recommend for the vinyl or plastic back piece?

RE: Vinyl Siding J channel repair

I have no idea. Thick enough that if you bend it repeatedly, it doesn't break right away.
