D&M Home Inspections

The purpose of siding is to provide a watertight skin on a home. The number one item listed on almost every report in the siding section is “Ground contact of siding, risk of hidden damage."

I cannot say it enough times. Move the mulch away from the siding, cut back trees, and shrubs, and improve the yard grade. I would prefer 18” between the siding and the ground and the siding and fully grown shrubs.
