Window Reflections Can Melt Vinyl Siding
If you have noticed the vinyl siding on your home or business warped, buckled, or bent in strange patterns and without ready explanation, the cause may well be sunlight reflecting off the nearby energy efficient windows. Sunshine reflected by highly reflective low-e (or low emissivity) windows can cause vinyl siding to melt by creating extra hot beams of light. And once this sunlight melts vinyl siding, the material must be pulled off wholesale and replaced, it cannot simply be repaired repainted.
And if your vinyl siding is doing just fine but you recently had energy efficient windows installed, you might have another issue to worry about...
Heat Reflecting Windows Can Melt Neighbors' Vinyl Siding
The sunlight reflecting off your home's windows may be about to cause a major issue between you and a neighboring home or business: if you have energy efficient windows and the other property has vinyl siding in near proximity, sun glare off windows can melt vinyl siding and create major discord in the hood as you are asked to pay for the damage. Instead, consider Turf Guard Window Film which can scatter sun beams and prevent melted vinyl siding. It's much less expensive than replacing vinyl siding and creates a lasting solution to melted vinyl siding issues.
