Perhaps a homeowner might not notice these issues, but we are certain a residential remodeling contractor, a siding contractor, or a professional carpenter would notice these issues immediately
(PRWEB) August 07, 2013
The Construction Defect Center is urging residential remodeling contractors, or home siding contractors to call them, if they have a client, who has a home with the Georgia Pacific PrimeTrim building product, and the home's fascia board, or window trim board has begun to rot, swell, delaminate, or warp.
The Construction Defect Center says, "According to court records, Georgia Pacific’s advertising claims that PrimeTrim can be installed, “wherever nonstructural wood trim can be used,” and that it does not have knots, splits, checks and wane. The company has also issued claims that PrimeTrim has four times more decay resistance than lumber; withstands direct sunlight better than lumber; and has more than 15 years of proven performance. Perhaps a homeowner might not notice these issues, but we are certain a residential remodeling contractor, a siding contractor, or a professional carpenter would notice these issues immediately."
The Construction Defect Center's Georgia Pacific PrimeTrim fascia, and window trim initiative is nationwide, and the group is most interested in hearing from homeowners who might have this specific type of building product, if they live in California, New York, Massachusetts, Ohio, Illinois, Alabama, Florida, Texas, New Jersey, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, North Dakota, Minnesota, North Carolina, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, or Colorado. For more information homeowners are encouraged to contact the Construction Defect Center anytime at 866-714-6466.
The Construction Defect Center says, "According to court documents it has been alleged Georgia Pacific's PrimTrim trim board, or fascia boards may have the following types of specific issues:
- PrimeTrim trim board that appears to be decayed, or has turned to a darker color
- PrimeTrim trim board that is spongy feeling, or easy to push your finger into
- PrimeTrim trim board that has delaminated
- PrimeTrim trim board appears to be swollen
- PrimeTrim trim board that appears to be rotting, or has cracked."
The Construction Defect Center says, "Court records indicate Georgia Pacific PrimeTrim fascia, or window trim board failures may be easiest to identify on shaded sections of a home, or sections of a home that does not get direct daytime sun exposure."
