How to Inspect Your Own House, Part 3: Siding

- . I’m lumping these two types of siding together because they’re nearly indistinguishable to the untrained eye, nearly 100% of ‘new construction’ home buyers that I work with don’t know which type of siding their new home has, and the installations instructions for these two types of siding are very similar ..More

Q&A: Heat Exchanger Cracks and Carbon Monoxide Myths
