A Don Tucker Rehab House – Siding Issues in Prairie Village

Donald Tucker Rehab:  Siding Issues in Prairie Village at kcmoHomeBuyer.com

Several years ago kcmoHomeBuyer.com’s very own Donald Tucker tackled one of the largest home renovation projects in a rehab house. This Prairie Village Home basically needed to be rebuilt from the basement up to the tune of 2010 dollars of about $92,000.

Today’s video takes a look at the many siding issues in this home to share with home sellers as well as home renovators just what really bad siding issues look like:

  • Mold and mildew everywhere.
  • Cracked vinyl siding in places
  • Entire strips falling off or missing.
  • Wood under the siding rotted
  • One entire wall filled with termite damage

While siding can sometimes be power washed, or if it is metal, powerwashed and painted, this vinyl siding in our rehab house was a lost cause. It just had too many problems that required us to completely remove the siding, fix the rotted wood, rebuild one wall, and even replace all the windows. Then we were able to put on brand new siding.

This exterior siding repair & windows in 2010 dollars were around $17,000. We found this handy calculator to estimate siding costs at Modernize.com. This calculator takes a look at all costs and the process so you can determine not only costs but also other needs like permits and time. Note the original siding was not that old, so it was on the cheaper end of vinyl siding. We went back with what would probably be a mid-range vinyl siding. Modernize also has a great calculator to determine the cost of windows replacement as well.

If you are a home owner faced with exterior siding that looks like this, one option is what we did, remove & replace. Another option is to just sell the home. We specialize in buying less than perfect homes, “as-is”, and we would love to talk to you about your home. Take a minute to tell us about your home to find out what we might offer.

I liked the fact that I wasn’t penalized or felt pressure for not getting everything cleaned out of the house. There was over 40 years and three families’ worth of treasure stored in the house, making me feel that the challenge of cleaning it was going to be impossible. I did what I could and you never hesitated in telling me that it’s ok to leave the rest behind.
