Default Re: Orlando Sentinel Article re: TV's Siding Problems

I agree with "gryoung" regarding the "let it go" comment.

We had our home inspected prior to purchase by a FL "certified" home inspector who claimed no problem with the siding. Not to say there isn't, but the report was OK.

The earlier thread about product quality is right on target. Siding comes in many grades from paper thin to nearly 1/8" thick at considerable extra cost. You get what you get what you pay for all along the line.

I dare say if "top of the line" stuff had been used everywhere in the homes, we would be paying considerably more than the reasonable prices we are for homes in TV.

TV has no corner on shoddy workmanship. I was involved in selling home improvements for a while including siding and I saw so many corners cut it wasn't funny. I finally got out of the business because it went completely against my grain.

It's all a trade-off.
