House Inspection - Siding Damage

Vinyl siding is a high quality product and is very good to use in our climate and weather.  Vinyl is fundamentally a plasitic and heat is the enemy of plastic causing it to melt, which can not be repaired.

Unexpectedly the sun actually causes most melting damage on houses by reflecting of various surfaces.  During home inspections I can often see where a grill was placed or a garden table.  Grills cause damage that can be seen in a house inpection by either reflecting the sun off the high polished steel or by being to close to the house during use.

Be careful when having those family barbeques and back yard events (be sure to invite your home inspector) keep those grills away from the house and when decorating the yard, watch for reflective surfaces near the siding.
