    Not sure about other sites but the stuff is generally junk. I'll usually tell people it's very similar to LP but just got less publicity because there was less of it installed (at least in my area).

    Some of the composites from that era perform marginally better than others but they're all going to be a problem at some point long before solid wood or cement fiber siding will.

    Here are some pics from an inspection I did last week. It might in fact be OMNI brand... I don't spend too much time looking for the exact brand.... it really doesn't change what I say about it.

    All wood fiber board AKA Masonite is crap. Gives a new meaning to "people Living in Cardboard Boxes"

    Well scheisse. I guess the Hann's foo dogs won't let a man say merde on this forum. You can say it on 500 television channels and in the printed media. But hell no, not here. Not in the venue noted for free speech. What is this world coming to anyway?
