defective siding in entire subdivision
i pulled into a subdivision last week and noticed every house was peeling paint on the sunny side of the house. this is an expensive side of town! the homeowner i was going to see surprisingly wanted her house painted. she said it was painted three years ago and wanted to replace the peeling siding and paint the rest. the siding is a pressed board from a major manufacturer and very common here. after giving her a bid i stopped to talk to a retired looky lou and asked him about his house . same problem he informed me it was a factory defect and about ten years ago they were part of a class action that won them enough money to do about 1/4 of thier houses in new siding. the siding is not taking in moisture under the peeling paint it looks brand new but they have been painted and painted and nobodys has stuck on the sunny side. any ideas?
