I’m an inspector in Idaho and I purchased my house in 2000 knowing it had t1-11 siding that had to be replaced.
The house was 22 years old and the paneling on the south and west sides were shot.
Our weather here gets extreme. 115 summer-0’s in the winters Dry humidity 20-30% and the stuff just can’t take the beating even with a good primer and paint.
The new housing going up around here (a-lot, California on the move)
are using a LOT of the hardy plank and a siding buddy of mine hates putting it up (heavy stuff) but he swears it the best thing for siding.
I know your in a wetter climate and you get some wacky weather too.
Just my 2cent's
