In-use outlet cover

Would like to know if there's a trick to installing an in-use cover with vinyl siding. Right now, the outlet is effectively recessed. Finished appearance is important. Thanks.

Use a box entender, and one of those trim kits the siding company probably sells, or even a weather-proof raceway box painted the right color, surrounded by J-channel. If you are artful, a block of wood carefully done can do the same thing as the trim kit or raceway box. Did you do the siding already? Dealing with this stuff is best done before the siding goes up.

Bell and Perfect line make w/p extensions in 0.5 and 0.75 increments.

As for appearance, It looks good from here.

Not exactly sure what you mean. If the existing raintite cover is horizontal and sitting properly on the siding, the "in use" cover should fit the same way. If a slob vinyl siding installer just left the outlet attached to the siding underneath and cut a hole through the vinyl, you've got problems.

This is probably the best looking way to go: http://www.aifittings.com/whnew73.htm
