This week I hired a painter to power wash the vinyl siding and paint the trim at this home. The painter used Clorox in doing his power washing, though I am unsure in what proportion it was mixed. The vinyl siding, a pastel yellow color, now appears faded, bleached, and chalked in spots. Could the use of Clorox have damaged the siding? The siding is probably +/- 15 yrs old..still in good condition otherwise. Any input would be appreciated.

he should have used TSP, a basic painter's wash. Yes, chlorine can damage vinyl

Excellence is its own reward!

You should give VinylBoost a try, it’s a product that restores faded vinyl siding back to its original appearance. The product did wonders to our home, saved us thousands of dollars because we were considering putting new siding up. Google VinylBoost or Handyman Labs and you’ll find them. Best of luck!
