Replacing Louisiana Pacific (LP) Siding
Many homes in the Northwest have Louisiana Pacific siding
that has failed and is in need of replacement. However do not
repair or replace your siding until you have it inspected by
Crawford & Co. (the court appointed independent inspection
company) or you will not receive any compensation from the class
action lawsuit, regardless of whether you have had it
independently inspected or not.
It's important to get your home inspected as soon as possible
as the class action lawsuit settlement is prorated. Therefore
the longer you wait the less money you will likely receive from
LP as a result. In most cases people can expect to receive about
half of the cost to replace the siding and it can take up to two
years for you to actually get compensation from LP.
Once you have received your check and are ready to replace
your siding, remember that it will be necessary to REMOVE the
old LP siding to see the full extent of the damage. Please see
the FAQ's for more information.
