Repair Unsnapped Sections of Vinyl Siding

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: Mark in Indiana, you’re up. How can we help?

    MARK: Yes, I have a home that’s about five years old.

    TOM: OK.

    MARK: It has vinyl siding. And up on the top connection – where it connects in – it seems to always come unsnapped in two different spots on the house and I’m wondering how do you keep this from reoccurring.

    TOM: When it comes unsnapped, do you get up there and like pop it back in?

    MARK: Correct.

    TOM: There’s a little tool called a zipper tool that most siding contractors have that can help reassemble that entire joint. Because I suspect that you’re not locking it in place when you push it back in. And it would be very hard for you to do that at this point. So, the next time it pops out, call a siding contractor. It will be a very quick, inexpensive repair for them to come back in and reassemble those sections of siding so that they lock together.

    MARK: OK, because it seems like it does snap in but evidently it’s not.

    TOM: No, apparently it’s not. And they can address that with the right kind of tool. It’s a specialty problem.

    MARK: Appreciate that. Thank you.

    TOM: Alright Mark, thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
