My post is just what it says ,My opinion. I do have an education on experience with spray on siding, none of it good in my area of the globe.And I HAVE done my research through highly educated inspectors that have seen these failures.
The problem with it is just as you say, bad installs, just like the problems with other stucco type spray on applications.I am not here to name any names.
The issue I have is just as you said " my rain boots fill with water" then end up prunes!!
You may be the all-time greatest installer but if you miss one water penetration it's all over.
With other sidings I have found they dry out faster with less damage.
Regular Vynil is almost alway"s installed wrong somewhere but it does not do the same damage.
Instead of your ranting why don't we have a civil education by you on this product.I don't mean marketing promo's either.
Looking forward to your educated opinion.
