We're in the process of having a house built, the sides and back of which are Cemplank. We noticed that if you get close to the wall and look down the side, you can see "wobbles" of the board. We checked other houses in the neighborhood and they all seem to have the same slightly wavey look. We chalked that down to "inevitablity". HOWEVER, on one side of our house, especially up in the roof area (house on sides is flat all the way up to the roof line), it looks considerably wavey. In fact, we can see in areas a 1/4 inch gap in parts where the bottom of one board and the board it lays on. How normal is this? Should we be concerned (esp. considering this is brand new construction)? Other then the aesthetic side of it, is it structurally of concern? Will that allow moisture in? Thank you, we simply don't want to close on this house if this is something that we should definitely make them fix before we do.
