Storing Vinyl siding in attic? Deform?


Quick question..

I bought more vinyl siding (Royal woodland 25) than I needed as not to run out of the color.

As luck would have it the supply company who sold me my vinyl siding changed hands (new owner) and will not take any returns. So now Im stuck with 25' length siding Im constantly tripping over in my garage.

Can I store this vinyl siding on a cat walk in my attic in Iowa without it deforming?

Thanks

Storing Vinyl siding in attic? Deform?


How much do you have? Can you take one piece, or a small piece, and get it to a temperature comparable to your attic on the hottest day to see if it deforms?

Some brands of vinyl siding are prone to deformation just from the heat of the sun.
