Our home is 15 yrs. old and has vinyl-clad aluminum siding. On the west side of the house the vinyl is peeling away from the aluminum in approximately 10 areas (mainly where the 2 lengths come together). I'd like to try and see if it is still under warranty, but don't know how to find out who the manufacturer was. Any help is appreciated. Also, is it possible to repair with paint the area that is peeling?

I would suggest removing a small panel, then taking it to a siding supplier....probably under "siding materials-wholesale". I've done this myself on occasion, a couple of times, and have been able to get the exact make, color, etc.

A roof CAN be your "friend"...rather than "that thing you hate".

Another route to siding siding is a fee for service, serving U.S. and Canada. - Residential siding identification & availability reports for vinyl, aluminum, steel and concrete siding throughout U.S. and Canada. will provide property adjusters, restoration contractors and homeowners with all the information necessary to make a siding repair determination.

“I have been told that my siding is discontinued." “I have looked for this siding but cannot find it anywhere."

SidingMatch will provide all the information necessary to know if a like, kind and quality siding repair is possible or confirmation of a discontinued siding with no repair siding available on today’s market. Approved by all carriers, required by many.

SidingMatch reports will:

Identify the siding’s manufacturer.

Review your repair options- original siding is available or a similar siding is suggested.

Location of distributor(s) local to the claim zip code.

Our lifetime paint is peeling off our Reynolds aluminum facia. It's been peeling for many years now. It was installed in 1994. We don't know how to repair it or get warranty work done.
