A woman contacted me in regards to her siding. She said that last spring some new townhouses were put up directly behind her, and ever since then, her siding has “melted”. It’s on the North face of the house, and it covers a large portion of the wall. She seems to think it’s from the windows on the new houses reflecting light. I’m wondering if it could be overly-tight fasteners causing buckling when it heats up? What are your thoughts – see pic.
She said she’s out of warranty and that the builder is only willing to replace the windows in the house behind her with ones that have “capillary tubes” in them to prevent reflection? I’ve never heard of this, but please enlighten me.
I haven’t done an inspection for her or anything…she’s just looking for some direction because she’s thinking this will end up in a legal battle.
