vinyl siding mounting block question

Surface Block

I have new carriage lights that I would like to install. Currently, they are just attached to the siding/electrical box, there is not decorative mounting block. I would like to use the above mounting block to "dress" it up a little but I'm not sure how the block stays attached to the siding. Does the light fixture hold it up? I could maybe put some caulk on the top of the block where it meets the lap of the siding.

I saw that before I posted this question. That's not the correct product. That is for a new construction mounting block. I went to the website to find to correct instructions but I was not successful.

So you remove a couple sections of siding, attach the block, reinstall the siding.

You will need a tool to unhook the bottom of the siding.

Yes, the fixture will hold it in place. Or you could add a couple of hidden screws behind the fixture.

That looks a bit different that the trim piece / mounting block I used. However, yes the fixture held up the mounting block. I caulked around the outside of the trim piece with clear silicone.

i used one of these for the light by the garage door -- worked pretty well. yep, fixture itself holds the block in place, and it's been fine for years now.



i used a thin foam strip around the top and sides where it meets the siding.

I'd get longer screws and use the fixture to hold it on, then caulk at least the top and down the sides to prevent water intrusion.
