The owners of this Chenal Valley home thought all they needed to do was install new siding. In fact, when they started the process to select their contractor, Sideco was one of three contractors contacted. The others, wanted to install vinyl siding over there existing siding and trim (even though Chenal Valley Architecture review committee does not allow Vinyl Siding anywhere in Chenal). Upon Sideco’s inspection of the home, I became thoroughly convinced that the existing deck was improperly installed with NO ledger flashing. In addition, Sideco suspected substantial moisture damage to the wall assembly. Sideco also deemed the existing deck UNSAFE. Frankly, we see this quite often, but what was most disturbing, was the fact that other Contractors the owner contacted all tried to convince the owner that installing plastic siding directly over the original siding was perfectly fine, and that they were certain there was NO moisture damage to the structure. The pictures speak for themselves.
