Construction Defect Center Launches National Initiative Focused on Identifying Homeowners Whose Home May Have Potentially Defective LP or ABT TrimBoard Building Products

Share Article

The Construction Defect Center is launching a national initiative focused on identifying homeowners, whose homes contain a potentially defective building product called Louisiana Pacific's, or ABT Building Product's TrimBoard, ProTrim, or ChoiceTrim. These types of building products were frequently used in new home, subdivisions, or condominium projects, coast, to coast, as window trim, on soffits, as a homes fascia board, lattice, fencing, or on handrails. The Construction Defect Center says, "The LP, or APT Trimboard, ProTrim, or ChoiceTrim products may be susceptible to premature failure. Symptoms of this failure include, swelling, decaying, rotting, or delamination of these Trimboard type products. The failure should be obvious to the homeowner, as it is easy to see, and tell the wood trim has failed. If a homeowner has a home built since 2005, and is now dealing with failed window trim, or fascia board, we want to hear from them, in order to help them discover if their window trim, or fascia board is from LP, or ABT. The bottom line is we do not want homeowners having to pick up the tab for faulty, or defective wooding siding products, and this is not our first rodeo, when it comes to these types of wood trim board failures."

Rotting, decaying, soft, or delaminated trim boards is not a new problem, its actually a very old problem, we completely understand the issue

The Construction Defect Center is saying, "We fear there could be literally tens of thousands of homes, that contain a potentially defective wood trim, or wood fascia building product called Louisiana Pacific, or ABT TrimBoard, ProTrim, or ChoiceTrim. Because the fixes are potentially in the thousands of dollars, per home, we need to get as many homeowners identified as possible, especially homes, in subdivisions, and or condominium projects, where these products were used on every home. We believe the defective Trimboard problem is national, and we are very focused on California, Arizona, Nevada, Ohio, Florida, Texas, and New York/New Jersey, along with the entire Pacific Northwest, with respect to homeowners, who have seen the wood trim board, or wood fascia board failures first hand." The group says, "If a homeowner, or condominium owner, has noticed their window trim, fascia board, has failed, if it looks bloated, if it has turned dark, if it has delaminated, or failed in any other way, call us at 866-714-6466, and we will do everything possible to help homeowners identify the product type, and at the same time try to get them some meaningful help. No other group in the nation offers a service like this, the catch is the home, or home remodeling involving the wood trim boards, cannot be any older than 6 years." http://ConstructionDefectCenter.Com

Specific Issues With Home Trim Boards, Or Fascia Boards The Construction Defect Center Wants To Hear About:

  • Wood trim board, that appears to be decayed, or has turned to a darker color
  • Wood trim board, that is spongy feeling, or easy to push your finger into
  • Wood trim board that has delaminated
  • Wood trim board that appears to be rotting

The Construction Defect Center says, "Rotting, decaying, soft, or delaminated trim boards is not a new problem, its actually a very old problem, we completely understand the issue, and we do not want homeowners, especially those in a subdivision, or condominium project to get left holding the bag. While our initial focus of this investigation might be Louisiana Pacific, and or ABT Building Products, actually we are looking at all makers, and we will assist homeowners, in new homes with product identification, should they have these problems with their home's exterior trim board, or siding products. This is a coast, to coast problem." For more information homeowners can contact the Construction Defect Center anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via their web site at http://ConstructionDefectCenter.Com
