Why Do Construction Defects Happen?
In today’s competitive market, builders are under pressure to keep costs down, so homes are affordable and profitable. Consumer’s demands for energy efficiency, as well as environmentally sound products, mean that homes are becoming more complicated to build. Many companies employ unskilled labor that lacks proper training or doesn’t have the requisite construction experience needed. Often these individuals will substitute knowledge and expertise for common sense when installing construction components.

Quality product selection doesn’t ensure improper installations and applications. As building techniques and products continuously evolve, our certified installers receive continuous education and training to keep them up to date on current installation methods and applications.
Do I Have Defective Siding?
Construction defects can occur in siding, siding components, and the envelope underneath. Poor installation, improper nailing, inadequate flashing or moisture/air barrier, poor paint coverage, weather and moisture exposure, improper maintenance, and faulty caulking is the most common defects in siding. Siding and building envelope defects can lead to the occurrence of dry rot in the structural framing. Dry rot is due to the accumulation of excessive moisture and can be a significant problem if not addressed.
Some defects are due to manufacturers’ errors and lead to different types of damage to the siding. Swelling along the edges, cracking, swelling around nails, wavy appearance, discoloration, siding coming apart, or siding turning soft are the most common. If you notice any of these characteristics or defects in your home’s exterior, SFW Construction’s experts are here to help. Our employees are trained and certified using DuPont Tyvek and James Hardie Siding Products.
