Siding


I'm having a waterfront home build in Canada near Owen Sound and finding it tough to decide on the siding material. I'm down to pre-finished wood like Maibec or Fraser versus engineered wood like Canexcel. I've noticed that Maibec is fighting a class action suit and has the product under investigation in the USA and that Canexcel is no longer selling in the USA. It leaves Fraser as the most logical choice.

Anybody had experiences with these products/companies the might help me?

Siding


Why even compare an engineered (OSB; chips from floor comes to mind) product with other real wood ones..... especially on a waterfront house. Fraser has one of the best installation instructions I have ever seen (other than specifying a "vapor barrier" rather than a "housewrap" (or building paper as they already said numerous times) in Fig.11; http://www.fraserwoodsiding.com/imag...install4pg.pdf Follow it, including all siding styles requiring a rainscreen (1x3 strapping) for your location; http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=...RvUBSlz4b5thmA

Including back-priming it before install.
