What You Need to Know about Masonite Siding

October 12th, 2011 · No Comments



There are plus’ and minus’ to every type of siding.  There is brick , vinyl, hard board, and masonite.  Brick is prbobaly my favorite but it also has draw back.  Masonite has “R” value but if water gets behind it and causes it delaminate and deteriate.  Vinyl has some advantages because you don’t have to be painted and doesn’t deteriate.  The downside is that there is no “R” value and they they brittle and can crack.  Hardboard is relatively new and the jury is still out on it.  Stucco has “R” valu but is bad about trapping moisture.  Just remember that each type of siding has plus’ and minus’ 

There are many home inspection companies you can choose from when you need a home inspector in Charlotte NC.  Let me tell you why Home Inspection Carolina is your best choice.  These guys have over 100 years of combined home inspection and construction experience.  They fix the small things like rubbing doors and sticking windows instead of putting them on the home inspection report like other home inspectors.  They have a preinspection program designed to help you sell your house by offering you a discount on the inspection and providing you with multiple copies of the report to give out.  They also put out a just inspected sign in the yard of your Charlotte NC home.  Home Inspection Carolina then sends out a “just inspected” email to their data base.  They like to think of it as a premarketing inspection instead of a prelisting inspection. 

Two new things that Home Inspection Carolina has started doing are home maintenance videos and customer coupons.  They have a large library of home maintenance videos on youtube so they link to these within the appropriate points in the report.  They also have established relationships with many vendors and contractors that allow them to give coupons to their home inspection clients.  The idea is to provide am entertainment book or citi pass book for new homeowners.  These are just some of the benefits of using Home Inspection Carolina.  If you are buying a home near Charlotte NC call them today.
