Vinyl Siding Repair From a CT Vinyl Siding Company

By fiderioandsons Feb 15, 2013

Vinyl siding is an affordable and smart investment for your home. While it is meant to withstand extreme weather and conditions, occasionally the vinyl siding on your home may break or tear.

Before conducting any repairs, we highly recommend asking your contractor about any manufacturer’s warranties or plans that might cover the damage to your vinyl siding. It is best to avoid tampering with vinyl siding until you know if the vinyl siding company will agree to cover the cost of repair.

Vinyl Siding Repair Prep

Always clean the surrounding area of the puncture or hole before repairing it. By cleaning the vinyl siding you will remove the surface dirt and debris that would interfere with the patch bonding. We recommend using the household cleaning products that we mentioned in our last blog post, How To Clean Vinyl Siding.

Order extra panels when you start your vinyl siding project. It is a good idea to have siding that matches identically to the siding already on your home. Make sure that you store the extra materials in a safe environment where they will not be damaged. If you haven’t taken this precautionary step then do your best to buy identical vinyl siding panels.

Matching Vinyl Siding 

Cut a piece of faded vinyl siding from an inconspicuous spot on the home and use it replace the damaged section. It is better to have vinyl siding that matches the home than to have brand new siding that does not blend with the rest of the house.

Repairing Vinyl Siding in the Winter

If you live in New England, we recommend waiting until Winter is over to really take the time to repair any damaged siding to your home. When temperatures get cold, vinyl becomes brittle and easy to break, especially if constantly handled.
