A house that was built a number of years ago has a problem with the engineered wood siding. Is there any warranty from the siding manufacturer?
Engineered wood siding is made from various combinations of wood veneers, fibers, or flakes, and bound together with glues, resins, and/or waxes. Several different types and brands of engineered wood siding have been reported to have moisture-related failures, possibly due to product or installation defects or improper maintenance. Class action lawsuits have been filed against several manufacturers-settlements have been reached in some cases; others are pending or have been dismissed.
First step, identify the manufacturer of the siding. Sometimes the manufacturer provides a distinguishing marking on the back of the siding. Once you have identified the manufacturer, you can then contact them to see if a settlement offer is still available. Siding Solutions, Inc. can assist you in identification of the siding material.
