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.
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.
