The sidings falling! Cement board siding is a great product, but will still fall short when installed improperly. These buildings have siding coming loose everywhere you look. The installers failed to use a moisture barrier, missed the studs while nailing, and didn’t gap planks for expansion. All of these mistakes lead to a high cost siding replacement project across nine large buildings.
The right solution for this job is a complete tear off, a house wrap type product applied, new siding carefully gapped and nailed to the studs, followed by OSI caulk and a quality exterior paint. This process when done correctly will ensure a good looking, long lasting siding installation, something Litespeed Construction is happy to assist with!
