What Causes It?

Vinyl siding warp is an eyesore that is often caused by uninformed maintenance decisions.

Painting vinyl siding with a paint color that is a darker shade than the manufacturer's original coat can lead to vinyl siding warp. 

Because darker shades of paint naturally absorb more heat from the sun than lighter shades, they cause the vinyl panels trapped under the paint to reach higher temperatures. If that substrate reaches a temperature higher than it was designed to withstand, the result is often vinyl siding warp.

How to Avoid It

The best way to prevent or correct warping of vinyl siding is to paint vinyl panels with a shade that is no darker than the manufacturer's original coating. 

If the vinyl siding expands beyond a certain limit, it will never contract to its manufactured shape and must be replaced in order to restore the desired appearance.
