Masonite siding
 
2 Attachment(s)
I have a home I bought 18mo. ago. It has two types of Masonite siding. For the most part it's in good shape. But I have 2 places where the siding is bowing. I'd like to just cut out and replace these two bad spots.
Is there a replacement for Masonite, without having to re-side the whole house.

First pic is the problem. Second pic is the other style of siding.

do you live in a area with ice dams? the first pic looks like water damage to me

No ice dams. That particular section is on the other side of the bathroom shower/tub. Id on't think the bathroom is the culprit though. Maybe. Won't know till I rip it out. But till I find a suitable replacement for the siding, It's a guess.

I read on here that using water before painting will cause it to buckle.

Also the ban wall all along the perimeter in the crawlspace is not insulated and I have condensation forming, turning the banwall black. But that's a who;le other issue. I already know how to fix that.

Looks like the LP product may work.
