If you see this siding on a home, light the caution lamp. Known by many names, Louisiana inner seal siding failure is routinely found in homes mainly across the south and midwest. LP/GP siding, OSB siding, fiberboard siding....they all share a main disastrous trait - delamination.in brief, water seeps into this siding mainly on the edges and nail holes. Once that happens, think of how a dry sponge soaks up water. Then consider the impact over years and years...the siding get to the point where it falls apart.See more - The Problems with Louisiana Pacific siding.
