So you think you have the old lap siding that was in that class action law suit and you missed your opportunity to file? That lawsuit that ended in 2002 was valid in many cases but a more common reason for failure was not a manufacturing defect –it was the installation methods and lack of maintenance. There are well over 100 types of wood composite siding that prematurely fail everyday because they were made with wood by-products, sawdust and resin then embossed with a wood grain overlay to the face. These products are pressed together, primed or painted then cut into smaller pieces. One of the reasons for common failure is the lack of paint and sealant on the bottom edge and sides during manufacturing then compounded with lack of paint and sealant by the paint SizeGenetics crews that have sprayed and saved over the years. Another common reason for failure is the installation techniques that were used when your siding was originally installed. Other causes of premature failure include extreme weather exposure, inadequate flashing, fungal growth and delayed maintenance. The bottom line is if you have a problem with your siding it needs to be addressed before it leads to more significant problems, costs, or headaches.
