Hardie Plank Preferred siding contractors Clackamas Happy Valley Lp siding

May 1, 2014 by Superior Exterior Systems Experts Leave a reply »

Superior Exterior Systems finished another home in Clackamas replacing failing Lp siding and installing Hardie Plank fiber cement, which is by far the most common product used in todays market.  Surprisingly, there is still a lot of Lp in areas like happy Valley, West Linn and Lake Oswego.  One of the main problems is that by now most of these homes had Lp put on 20 -25 years ago when they were originally built.  With the constant rain we get, Lp siding has been  swelling and growing mold behind the siding which is why it went into a lawsuit in the mid 90’s.  Sometimes we have found that the original siding companies did not put ANY moisture barrier underneath which accelerates the problem.   With digitally calibrated moisture meters we can do a free inspection of your Lp.   Many siding contractors practice unethical  tactics.  We won’t.  Many times, we have told homeowners that they can get a few more years out of their Lp depending on how old it is and if it was painted well often enough.  For more information and to see IF you have Lp, look up our website and you will see the Lp trademark knot on the slideshow.  Call (503) 285-0875 and visit us at    ‎www.superiorexteriorsystems.com
