Entry: psoriatic (adj.)

In context:  "...with sagging porches and psoriatic paint-jobs or aluminum siding gone carbuncular from violent temperature-swings..."

Definition: Of, relating to, or associated with psoriasis; affected with psoriasis.

Other: This got me wondering how many words in Scrabble (North American version) begin with PS - 267, as it turns out.  See: PSAMMITE, PSCHENT, and a bunch of PSEUDO- words with PSEUDOSCORPION being one of the best.
