Vinyl siding, white spots?


Original siding construction companies' son came by today. He looked at my siding for 20 seconds.....he said its 100% defective.
He never seen this before.

Even better. He personally knows the Mastic rep in our area. He said it wont be a quick process, but it's something he wants to help me with.

Vinyl siding, white spots?


The weird thing is these spots appear only in the back, left and right sides of our home, but not in the front......hail falls everywhere but in the front of our home......can this be partially due to hail damage?

I got a response from PlyGem siding group today.

"Spots" in a horizontal line are usually indicative of fasteners in close proximity to the siding panels. This can cause heat build-up and/or water retention, which can accelerate weathering of these areas. As installation of siding is beyond a manufactures control, this is not covered by warranty.

this is a new one for me,ive never seen this happen before because of heat build up,but like i said i have seen condensation on the panel where the nails are,i can't imagine the nails getting hot enough under the siding

So what are they saying, the siding was nailed too loose?

What should my next step be? I obviously cannot keep the siding looking like this.

I would want to know “specifically” what it was that the installer did to cause this.

Did the rep. remove any panels? Are there any pictures of the nailing?

No rep came out at all. I sent them a sample piece from my home. Can this be painted or should I stay away from that?

Right now I have 2 options. Paint it or try and clean it.

I can always use a light color latex paint, which will flex with the vinyl's movement.

As far as cleaning goes....not sure what I can try to use to remove the spots. I don't think there is anything I can use.
