Checkered Past of Masonite Siding

Masonite is a hardboard made from wooden fibers and has been widely used in the construction industry since the 1930’s. Unfortunately, there is a long history of problems with this type of siding.  After mass production and installation increased, humidity and water began causing extensive deterioration of the siding on homes. In the 1980’s, manufacturers addressed these moisture problems with new technology; however, their new siding caused mold and swelling of boards. Following a successful class-action lawsuit, all Masonite siding was recalled and manufacturing of the material ceased. Today, manufacturers have improved the quality of hardboard siding so it’s now a safe choice for your home. If your home still has old Masonite siding, here are some common problems to watch out for:
