Do you need a local siding replacement contractor in Vancouver WA metro area? Much of the Hardie Plank fiber cement siding in the last 20 years went up too fast in subdivisions and was installed by shabby non professional siding installers and general contractors who were more concerned with time since time is money. Panel style Lp siding is nailed directly up over the studs with no moisture barrier to protect the studs potentially creating serious problems if rain is trickling in. Over time, rain trickling in causes the studs to rot because it doesn’t dry out. See the picture below. There is no plywood subwall under Lp t1-11 “panel siding” which is why the builders used it so often. They always want to keep their costs down which maximizes their profits. If your Lp panel siding is over 20 years old you could have soft problem areas. Especially at the bottom of the panel on the south and the west sides. If you are in Camas or Washougal areas it would be more the south and the east side from wind driven rain. A 2 story home with panel style Lp siding is more likely to have problems since its more exposed to wind driven rain.
