Pacific Exteriors NW is often called upon here in Salem, Oregon, for home siding, capital improvements, rehab, construction defect repair, and remediation from many insurance companies, property owners, investors, architects, attorneys, and real estate agents. We provide estimates and reports that can assist owners, capital investors, property management groups, real estate agents, and financial lending institutions, among others, in determining if the purchase is a fiscally wise and sound investment due to capital improvements, maintenance, and building envelope rehab and repair costs. Leaking windows and doors, wind-driven rain, water intrusion, dry-rot, water damage, siding problems, construction problems, and builder issues, siding installed without a moisture barrier, high moisture content in the walls, dry rot evident, flashing omitted in critical detail areas, seals fogging up, discoloration to cladding, are all common telltale signs of more widespread issues and building flaws. Here in the Salem and Portland metro area, home siding, apartment buildings and HOA condominiums, and townhomes with siding problems, defective LP siding, EIFS and DryVit stucco siding, and vinyl siding issues are becoming more widespread due to vinyl siding fading, buckling, warping from vinyl windows, high winds coming off the wall, vinyl siding can also trap moisture and water behind the wall. Many of our home siding and capital projects are replacing old and existing vinyl or cedar siding on apartments, condominiums, or townhomes with new HardiePlank (Hardie siding) or other sustainable exterior cladding materials with water management systems.
