Heat and Vinyl Siding


I got a call today from a homeowner who said they have some slight heat exposure issues with their siding.

I showed up at the appointment and took notice of the "Slight" heat exposure.

I was even asked if some of this exposed siding could be reused ?

But,,,,It gets better.Off to the side of the garage with "Slight" heat exposure was the source of the heat.

So,,,any chance of reusing these " Slight" heat exposed panels ?

I don't know, the stuff to the right of the second door looks ok. Good thing it was just a slight heat.

How many times have we seen where the grill was set to close to the house?

The funnest one I saw was where the damage was in two spots 10 ft. apart.
The mother had told her son to never set the grill there agin because it had ruined the siding, so the next time he grilled he moved it 10 ft. down and did it again.

Joe,
I have three panels of siding in my van right now to repair a 'grill to close' job. Seems to happen all the time. Even if it wasn't vinyl siding, why would anyone want their grill that close to the house?

Just to lazy to walk to a better spot I guess.
We had a whole house burn down in my area and I know it's not the first one.
He put a piece of poop dollar store hibachi grill on a wooden picnic table right next to the house. Bottom falls out and the rest is history.

A week does not go by when I see the wavy siding someplace.

One customer had Lowes install there siding. It bubble up everywhere on a two story house.
They called in a factory rep and to quote him "it's because the windows are reflecting light and casing the siding to over heat" .
These people should have known if you have windows in a house it would ruin the siding. LOL
It also was all coming unlocked, it was trimed wrong and the soffits were falling out.

Should have seen the railings and deck they also installed.
It's all trashed and it's got to all be redone by someone.
The bottom rails were put on upside down and the whole rail split in two.
All the screws were steel and rusted off.
No supports in the middle of the rail so it all sagged.

for what it's worth, I have melted vinyl siding on my house from my neighbors low-E windows that were installed a couple years back, nice arc of the sun ....

check out these posts, first is from the Vinyl Siding Institute the organization that promotes the use of vinyl siding, second is a news report and third is from the Massachusetts State Board of Building Regulations and Standards. Shocking if you've never seen it before.

Good info to know.
But in this case there's no near by houses and there's no windows facing the siding, like with an inside wall.

This customer has the worst luck.His truck burns in his drive way.Then about 1 week ago another truck of his popped out of gear and ran over not one but both of his feet.He is bed ridden in the hostpital with 2 crushed feet and ankles.

I made sure nobody on the jobsite drank their water or shook anyones hand. Hahahahaha
