The material appears similar to masonite. It's a type of hard compacted particles. The surface has been painted, I dont know if it came pre-finished or not.
This siding is mostly still in good condition, except the bottom board, which has weathered and has disintergrated on one side, plus there's a hole in one board from a fallen tree.
I'm looking to see if I can purchase a few replacement boards to repair the bad boards, and then repaint the whole cabin. For cost reasons, I dont want to reside the whole thing, not to mention that I find today's plastic siding repulsive, and there dont seem to be much else available other than metal ribbed steel, which would make it look like a barn. I doubt I'll find this stuff new, but maybe some demolition company will have some boards. The problem is that I dont know what this stuff is called, so it's hard to call places and ask them if they have it, when I dont have a name for it.
Anyone know what this is called?
Thanks in advance.
