Siding damage


Recommended Posts

That looks like Hardiplank or one of its fiber-cement competitors. It looks like the paint has blistered off due efflorescence caused by moisture saturation.

My guess is that they either put that clapboard on while it was still damp after either lying on damp ground or being rained on or something is allowing water behind the siding and that's where the water is stopping behind the siding. It's soaking through, the product is efflorescing a little bit and the paint is blistering off along the entire line.

Edited comment: Wait a minute. Just looked at the photo again. What idjit put sprinkler heads that close to an exterior wall? My first suspect is now the irrigation system. Did you turn the system on to see if one of those heads is spraying water on the siding?
