Well...someone asked me to post pics. I don't wanna "test" with any chemicals especially on my home's siding.

Dinosaur1, look at this link on how to clean your siding.

http://www.vinylsiding.org/aboutsidi...main/cleaning/

As mentioned it looks like permanent discoloration to me also.

Not worth cleaning then? So 1. I am stuck with it or 2. Replace it....is that correct?

I would certainly try to clean it but if it is actually faded then our stuck.

You can paint vinyl siding but I’ve never been satisfied with the result.

we have had bad hail storms over the years. insurance covered the cost of my roof 3 yrs ago, but i don't think they would touch this.

I doubt it would either. If this is fading I’ve got to say I’ve never seen vinyl fade like this before.

Do you know the manufacture of the siding?

It sure does appear to be.

The product is covered for “excessive fading”. I would call this excessive if it's fading.

I wonder if they would replace it all around our home, even in the front where its not fading yet? they would almost have to otherwise the colors wouldn't match.

I don’t know what they will or will not do. I’d like to know though.

After you’ve tried cleaning and if that does not work, file a claim. You can download the claim packet from the site.

Come back with an update, good luck.

I am the 2nd homeowner. So does the lifetime warranty the manufacturer gave transfer to any owner?
