I'm wondering who else has problems with the KAUPS and( in my opinion )there lack of quality and service. The siding on my house is certainteed cement board and Mark Kaup after over a month of looking for some answers has told me they will not stand behind work and said the caulk is the only thing that needs to be replaced. Meanwhile it's buckled and it has shrunk. I've seen other homes with the same problem and with this stance, a class action lawsuit is in order? Who is in?

Yep, had a Camelot home and same thing happened! Also, watch for windows - they are crap as well. Camelot uses some nice place, but it is basically Menards quality. I hate to say it, but you get what you pay for. Also, watch out for some O'Donnell homes - they build a high end and a LOW end.

There are so many other exisitng good quality homes in New Lenox, why people are dumping money into this garbage is unbelievable.

These homes are good for about five years and then SELL it! There will be problems after problems.

I have cedar siding so I haven't had issues, but have seen around here exactly what you are talking about. Have you seen this? Looks like a class action against Certainteed is already out there. I am pasting here and hope it helps. I googled too and found a ton of people complaining about that brand of fiber board and so you might have some avenues outside of Camelot that may help you out. Just trying to help and sorry you are having a crappy time with the siding.
