 ratty barn siding

I have an old barn with vertical 12" siding (nice long boards). Over the years the bottom ends of the boards have rotted (being in or too close to damp dirt). It now looks like a smile with jagged teeth. I'd like to restore a crisp, straight line across the bottom but I'm stumped as to the "how". The barn rests on stone piers. I can't lengthen the siding and if I cut a straight line across the bottom I'll have a real gap between the siding and the ground. Is there any kind of product that could be used in this situation?

A picture sure would help. Me recommendation - cut off enough to even them all out and install a pressure treated kick board. For example, if you cut off 11", you can then install a PT 2x12 horizontally, (toe/kick board) to replaced the rotted wood you removed.

As an alternative to pressure-treated boards, consider using Hardiplank, a concrete based product from New Zealand. It's paintable, termite proof, and is guaranteed for 50 years. I just sided a farm house with it and the insurance company rated it the same as masonry, saving me about 1/3. Price is about the same as masonite but the appliers want a bit more. Look into it, you'll be impressed with appearance and the technology. Good luck

Thanks jt and Farmhouse. With either product would you need to put some sort of drip edge behind the bottom of the vertical siding and then up over the top of the horizontal board to prevent water from going inside? Thanks. Also I'll try to put a photo here if I can figure out the process.

I'm no carpenter but I'm sure that you would need some form of transitional cap between the vertical siding and the new material. In the case of the Hardiplank, the rest of the application is overlapped much like wooden siding. James Hardie, the company has a website, www.jameshardie.com that will give you more detail. And by the way, I don't work for Hardie, I just like to see a great product get the notice it deserves. Good Luck
