Masonite type stucco siding


The front of our home has a Masonite type stucco board on it with cedar trim (tutor like look). The bottom of some of the Masonite- type boards are showing some rot. It looks like the paint is bubbling in certain areas but one has a chunk missing.

We had a quote to replace the one board and cedar trim ( and paint it for $1400) and replace the whole 2 story boards and cedar trim , an paint it for $3200). Is it look to replace it all at once or wait?

The other temp option I looked up was using some paste type hardening filler to fill a cut away section of the Masonite and paint. This might be a 3-4 temp fix.

Thoughts?

Thanks

thing is you don't want it to get bad enough to start being a problem with your houses sheathing,any moisture damage should be removed and the source of the problem should be rectified and repaired,not simply covered up

Thanks. Sorry for typos on my phone. Do you think a cement board is the way to go?

yes probably,but the challenge is to flash and caulk it properly so no water is allowed to get between panel and trim,or if it does get in it can drain freely
