Attached pix from a piece found on a home with siding approx 20 years old. What is it?
Several areas around home soft, spongy with many nail pops.
The handy-man hired to only patch the nail pops for the seller finds that trying to spread the latex caulk over the pops and some exposed subsurfaces just scrubs the thin outer finish off exposing a very soft fiberboard-like material underneath.
He is wondering if he should continue caulking or…?
Handy-man has also been supplied with a few spare boards to replace rotted sections. Seller also plans to have cement board attached to lower 5 feet of exterior in some areas and attaching (thin brick).
Any suggestions to give the Handy-man.
Also I did not do the inspection and just looking around the garage (electrical, fire-code) and the exterior I wonder who did the inspection and what was noted on his report??!
