Reader Question: my Boise Cascade hardboard siding is in bad shape, how do I get results? Ray Ellison Home.

(June 23, 2014) David Coolbaugh said:

The siding on the house I had built in 1992 is in bad shape. I need it completely replaced on 3 sides. The front is brick. How do I get results?
I live in San Antonio Texas. My neighbor just gave up and had his house re sided with hardi plank.

I think my house should last longer than this. I paid good money for my home. This is wrong. Please contact me. This was a Ray Ellison home. 210-521-2665. Or contact my wife on her cell...Cheryl Coolbaugh 210-535-4680.
