These are the photos from the beginning of the job and the siding that was on there is a masonite-type hardboard. It's composition is very similar to medium density fiberboard. The siding was quiet popular when it first came out as it was supposed to be a "for life" siding but the ends of each siding piece eventually would swell and so after 30 years the siding did not look as good anymore.
On the back side of the homes addition there was a section of wall that slightly buried underground. The next set of photos are of what was found and house it was fixed.
