Vinyl Siding Protective Window Film

Understanding Siding Damage from Sunlight Reflection

Have you ever wondered what causes siding to warp or melt? It's a phenomenon that often takes homeowners by surprise. When sunlight interacts with energy-efficient Low-E windows, it can create a concentrated reflection that has the potential to damage your house siding. This reflective effect can generate significant heat, enough to cause harm to artificial turf, vinyl siding, and even patio furniture. Unfortunately, this issue is more prevalent than you might think.

Low-E windows are known for their energy efficiency, helping to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. However, they can inadvertently create problems when they reflect sunlight onto your home's siding or artificial turf, resulting in melting and warping. Interestingly, this challenge extends beyond residential settings, affecting various surfaces like car moldings and plastic materials.

It's important to be aware of this phenomenon and take appropriate measures to protect your property from the potential consequences of concentrated sunlight reflections.
