Default Re: Orlando Sentinel Article re: TV's Siding Problems

After 1 year I'm not surprised the Villages washed their hands of this mess.

I owned a home up north It was covered with aluminum as was the entire development. There was a bad hail storm that damaged the siding and everyone had to get new. Everybody got vinyl siding Some people up graded to thicker siding most did not. The upgraded siding continued to look good for several years with no problems. Those who got the thin grade had a bucket full of problems.

In case folks don't know it there are various grades of siding I've saw the villages siding and I know this to be a very thin grade. The thinner the siding the more probems with buckling excessive movement fading etc. Also depending on normal wind direction and how the siding was overlapped could also cause the siding to fall off with storm winds.

When it comes to thin grade of siding proper installation is a must.

My opinion about vinyl siding. I would not get it again but up north there are very few options.

Wishing you all only the best on your fight.
