Is this bad enough to replace?


Does this look bad enough to have to replace before moving in? There is water damage to the paneling beneath the window

Go with your guy. You know it needs to go...

If you know you have water, you need to rip that out and fix the issue before you build new or you ruin the new material.

Now that you removed a whole section of panel, can you match it 100%? Probably not, therefore you will need to remove it all and start new...

I am a do it right the first time kind of guy...

i know why, a bunch of punk kids broke out several of my windows with rocks, and the rain came in and ruined my subfloor and paneling beneath the windows. There is no way im replacing all of it, thats ridiculous, there is nothing wrong with the rest. Paneling is $20 a sheet. My budget to fix this is 2k for everything.

the water problem is fixed now, we just had a solid week of storms and the only water in the trailer was coming in through a leaky roof, landing in the bathroom sink, so we are good as far as the windows go, we just need to fix these panels now

Panel needs to come off, area treated for mold, insulation replaced before installing a new panel. As long as the exposures match you can cheap out by cleaning the walls, priming with a bonding primer, and painting.

there is no mold, ive already made sure of that. i think the constant air flow from the broken windows made the panels dry before mold could start, im not sure, but i do know the carpet was getting soaked with every rainstorm and yet it just dries, no mold on it either. Weird but good for me.
