Regular problem vinyl

Definition

Warping or buckling of vinyl siding panels that have been repainted.

Causes

  • Repainting vinyl siding with a darker color than the original color. Dark colors tend to absorb heat, transferring it to the surface. Once the vinyl siding has expanded, it is not able to contract to its original form.

Solutions

  • Avoid painting vinyl siding with a darker color than the original color.
  • Use a high-quality paint, which is generally formulated with superior flexibility.
  • Siding that is warped or buckled should be assessed by a siding or home-repair contractor to determine the best solution. The siding may have to be replaced.
