When you are checking out homes, there are several items in our market you need
to be aware of - including man-made siding. A lot has been said about L.P.
(Louisiana Pacific) OSB (Oriented Strand Board) products, and they have borne
most of the bad press.
But did you know that there can be issues not just with LP, but with
Omni Board (made by Masonite) Stimson Fortestex, Weyerhauser and others? You
need to know, Siding replacement can cost tens of thousands of dollars!
When the time is right, ask us about ASHI home inspectors and the
benefits of making your offer contingent upon YOUR approval of a home /
siding inspection where necessary.
