Understanding T1-11 siding

If you haven’t heard of the T1-11 before, it was once a popular siding choice. It is a wood or wood-based siding that can be fitted into many styles ranging from clapboard to batten.

T1-11 siding is also easy to install and replace compared to other siding types. For example, if one panel has some issues like peeling or cracks, simply replace it with just one section instead of replacing the entire home’s siding.

It is available in two options:

  • Plywood – As the name states, it is made from plywood materials. Generally speaking, this option stands up better to weather elements.
  • Oriented strand board (OSB) — OSB has the appearance of its plywood counterpart, but it is actually made from wood flakes that are combined and pressed together to form one panel. Unlike plywood, OSB doesn’t stand up well to moisture exposure, as moisture can seep in between the melded wood flakes, weakening the siding. This leads to surface issues such as peeling and cracks.

Despite its versatility and affordability, the T1-11 siding has fallen out of favor in recent decades. When untreated, T1-11 can be susceptible to scrapes, dents, cracks, peeling, and, most notably, moisture damage. And moisture can take on many forms, such as rain, snow, and humidity.

The longevity of the T1-11 siding depends on the location, installation, and maintenance. Compared to other types of siding, T1-11 is quite high maintenance. Due to its fragile composition, the T1-11 siding must be painted, stained, or sealed about every three to five years to provide it with sufficient protection against deterioration.

However, maintaining your T1-11 siding can be a laborious and time-consuming process. Not to mention that it is costly and requires consistency of application to prevent irreversible damage.

Whatever the issue your T1-11 siding has, you can significantly cut down the cost of maintenance while getting a quality paint finish by hiring a professional painting in Dublin contractor. Custom Painting, Inc. uses the right tools and techniques to ensure enhanced finish and protection for your T1-11 siding.

Benefits of professional T1-11 siding painting

When you have your T1-11 siding professionally painted and maintained, you will be able to enjoy the following advantages:

  • Enhanced aesthetics – Painting, staining, or sealing your T1-11 gives it a refreshed look that will boost your commercial building’s curb appeal, giving it a welcoming appearance to attract potential customers.
  • Improved durability and protection – Since T1-11 siding is more vulnerable to outdoor elements compared to other types of siding, it needs to be painted or stained regularly to add a layer of protection against those elements.
  • Maintained or increased property value – A fresh coat of paint can maintain or even increase the value of a commercial property. This is especially advantageous if you plan to lease or sell your commercial property. Choosing a decent color palette, using a high-quality paint or stain, and hiring the best painters in Dublin, CA, are only some of the ways to maintain or even significantly increase your commercial building’s property value.
