Is My Wood Siding Defective?

There are several concerns that could arise with exterior wood siding that may be signs of defective wood. It is important for home owners to inspect their siding for the following conditions:

• Warping
• Rotting
• Cracking
• Deterioration
• Not Holding Paint

If you are noticing any of these symptoms, your wood siding may be defective. You should immediately find out what type of wood you are dealing with. This information can usually be obtained from the builder, the lumberyard that supplied your builder, or the manufacturer.

The siding manufacturer is typically located on the backside of the siding. You may have to remove a part of your siding to get this information. If you can't find it there, you should contact the builder. Also, often times a neighbor with similar siding will be able to answer to some of your questions.

Once you have identified the manufacturer, you will need to get in contact with them: generally by phone or letter. Most definitely a manufacturer will stand by their product. Assuming that the siding was installed correctly, the manufacturer should be able to resolve your problem. Homeowners are encouraged to research any issues related to defective wood siding.
