Why Are Construction Defects Becoming So Frequent?
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 lack proper training or don’t have the requisite construction experience needed. Often times these individuals will substitute knowledge and expertise for common sense when installing construction components. Even when quality products are used, improper installations and applications can result in defects. As building techniques and products constantly evolve SFW’s certified installers receive constant education and training to make sure they are up to date on current installation methods and applications.
Do I Have Defective Siding?
There are numerous kinds of defects that 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. This is due to 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.
