Siding failures have not only been related to the EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finish System) but several types and brands have had some type of class action law suit at some point in time in the past. These failures are not always the fault of the manufacturer siding components but many failures are due to missing flashings, caulkings, and clearance details that were not properly installed at the time of the original installation. Today's installations are improving but we are still finding siding inspections which reveal possible water intrusion areas due to poor detail . Catching these details early can save thousands in repair cost and if your purchasing a home give you more knowledge in order to make a better buying decision. For example Stone Veneers now being installed are not always flashed as recommended by the manufacturer and are have moisture issues, The example detail drawing shows proper flashing detail from stucco to stone veneer. I'm finding in NE Kansas that the metal transition flashing is hardly ever installed which can lead to moisture intrusion Order your siding inspection today.
