Thinking of purchasing a 25 yr old split level house in the Boston area.
It's unusual around here as I've never seen it before, but the siding on the
house is comprised of relatively smooth vertical wood strips. Maybe 10 feet
long. Probably tongue-in-groove, but not sure.
Anyway, the bottom of the siding ends about a foot or so from the ground,
which is fine.
But, they added a horizontal board to pretty the ends up, which, of course,
and caused several of these vertical boards to stay moist, and begin to
"rot" at the bottoms.
Perhaps for about 2 inches, or so, upwards.
Would be a shame to have to replace an entire, long, vertical board because
of a few inches bad at the bottom.
Is there something anyone can suggest on how to address a problem like this
Suggestions would be very appreciated.
