Check with Harvey or a building supply location in your area.

Look up siding supply yards in Boston. Call several and give them sizes and ask for a price. You should be able to find Simonton and a few others.

+1. Check out the builder supply houses... I don't know whats in your area, but a few big nationwide companies are Allied, ABC, and Richards.
