We specialize in siding and siding repair. Wood siding with vertical lines are most commonly T-11 siding. As with all wood siding and Masonite horizontal siding rots at the bottom and eventually needs to be replaced.
If you own a wood frame house no worries, this will not happen when the stucco is maintained. If your stucco has not been maintained, it is time to worry. Stucco is porous water can seep in and windblown rain is not covered by Homeowners insurance. Once water is in the wall it never dries. It will rot the structure of the house breeding black mold as it goes. What could be worse? Hurricanes, these walls will not hold up to high wind pressure. It does not matter how you protect your windows if the wall is compromised. If your stucco has needed paint, neglected caulk around the windows or cracking these are areas that are taking in water each time it rains. If it is not bad get a painter now. If it has been going on paint will not help. Call us for your free estimate!
The most popular replacement method or “budget” method that we do not recommend is to cut the bottom two feet off around the entire house. Then put a 1″x 4″ board at the cut and new wood siding below the board.
We replace entire sheets of siding eliminating the leak issue and leaving little evidence of any rework. No worries.
Depending on your budget we can water seal the back 24 inches and bottom edge of the wood siding before installation adding more years to the natural life of the siding.
We can also color match and paint the siding for you, offering you a complete job. If you have your own painter or you like to DIY, we always prime the siding to keep it water sealed until the paint goes on within a couple months.
