While resistant to rain and rot, snow and sunshine, one thing vinyl siding cannot stand up is extreme heat. According to the Vinyl Siding Institute, at temperatures in excess of 160 degrees Fahrenheit, vinyl siding is subject to melting and warping, and can be ruined in terms of appearance and functionality. And this level of heat is easily created by sunlight bounced off of highly reflective windows.
The vinyl siding melting point of 160 degrees Fahrenheit is only a little lower than the melting point of synthetic grass, which is usually ruined by temperatures in excess of 200 degrees. Window reflections melt turf just the same as they melt vinyl siding, for indeed the patches of magnified light created by reflective windows often reach this extreme heat.
Low-E windows are chiefly responsible for melted vinyl siding and damaged artificial grass. These windows are designed to reflect maximum sunlight, and in their double paned variety often display a slight concavity, which only concentrates the reflected light more intensely. If you want to make sure the light bouncing off your low-E windows never reaches the vinyl siding melting point, then consider Turf Guard anti-reflective window film. This window film is amazingly effective at stopping even highly reflective windows from creating magnified, damaging beams of reflected light.
