When you don't have the proper moisture barrier and possible gutter leaks wood rot is inevitable. Also having proper caulking to avoid leaks is important to protect water from infiltrating and causing damage. This homeowner needed a detailed estimate to have their worn siding removed and have all new installed.
Pro Home 1 solution was to remove all wood rot, install new 1/2 OSB sheeting, replace furring strips with treated 1 x 4's and installed the proper water barrier. We capped the upper portion of addition with aluminum and caulked windows. Pro Home 1 also removed all siding and replaced it with Mastic Quest 0.046 vinyl siding 5" double lap. Gutters were replaced with 5" standard gutters with 4" downspouts.
