Should we call contractor?

deee_gwMay 30, 2013

Last September we had new windows and new cypress clapboards put on one side of our house. Five boards have split, a few pretty significantly. Is this considered normal "wear and tear" or should we call the contractor and expect him to repair or replace them?

Call him to come out and look at the problem. If he used good boards and they were painted properly I wouldn't expect them to split "significantly"
