I did an inspection on this home that had replaced the Allura siding that was defective as part of a class action lawsuit.
The replacement siding has several installed issues. The allura installation guide specifically mentions a particular type of nail and to be nailed every 16" on the stud.
There are no clips required per the installation guide.
The installers couldn’t get the specific nail, but found a similar one and nailed the siding into the sheathing.
The owner mentioned to the builder that the siding was not replaced properly and wants it redone. About 2,700 sq/ft was originally replaced.
The builder response was they will just put more nails in the boards to get them installed properly…
My customer is asking if this is acceptable…
I definitely would appreciate you help on this matter.!
