vinyl siding piece comes loose
On one side of my house, the bottom edge of one piece of vinyl siding has pulled out from adjacent pieces (above and below) for a distance of about 6 feet. This has happened 2 or 3 times after high winds. Although the wind normally does not hit that side of the house directly, strong air currents along that wall probably occur from general air turbulence.
When this has happened, I snapped it back into place and it may stay in place for awhile and this pull out again after a very windy day.
This strip of siding is basically midway between top and bottom of this section of wall. I'm wondering how to resolve this without a major removal and reinstalling of the siding on that wall. I've never worked with vinyl siding. Any suggestions on how to make that piece stay in place without removing surrounding pieces?
