What could have done this to my vinyl siding?

I think the Internet needs to BURP!. It gets the hiccups now and then.
Two links in another thread acted this way the other day, for me.
Don't change software - yet!

I don't know. Try dragging the the icon next to the URL to the status bar at the bottom of the window.
BTW- no little kids that could have done this.

Are you using Firefox or another non-Internet Explorer browser to view the link? I had the same problem in Firefox, but was able to open it in IE7.

Worked for me in Firefox. v2.0.0.1
I'm not sure version 1 will remind you to get version 2, for some reason.

Whatever solvent was used to remove the sloppy overspray from the vinyl. Look at the bottom of the picture..there s more overspray there..Who "Sprayed" the vinyl ? They were lazy, should have spent a little time masking it over prior to staining.

So you thought this was a farce on first thought? Some gimmick in PhotoShop? Folks here are smarter than that...

Here a close up picture, so you know I didn't Photoshop it.

Here is a pic of the deck. The damaged area is all the way to the left.

I think I used Lift-Off #5 because the stain was from DEFY epoxy stain which is water based, but don't hold me to that, this was 16 months ago. Infact I used the whole DEFY system, stripper. brightener, then the stain.

That ugly plastic "siding" looks like hell. It makes your house look like a shanty.

The front looks better, half brick, half vinyl.

Brick veneer on a vinyl house = lipstick on a pig.

I'm w/ the guessers who think it looks heat-caused more than chemical although it's possible, I suppose, depending on just what was in whatever was used.
But, it looks to me like it is concentrated in an area just to the right of the railing post and is graduated from the center outwards in all directions which would seem to be consonant w/ a single source at that point. It would almost have required the material be sprayed w/ a wide pattern concentrating in that area it seems to me to have left that type of damage.
I'd be for pulling that off and investigating behind it pronto as I'd be concerned as somebody else also mentioned about the possibility of an electrical problem from the proximity to the outlets/etc. It's going to have to be replaced, anyway; better to have an ugly hole w/ showing for a while while you find replacement siding than to have the house go up in flames because you ignored a possible problem.
If it turns out there isn't any visible damage behind it, then you'll have pretty well confirmed it was a chemical or external source and can rest easy. If there is, you may just save a bundle...in dollars and other ways, as well.

Relax...I was kidding.
By the way, if I paste your links into a new browser window, they work fine. If I click on them in your posts, I get that weird "picture of text" msg that I mentioned earlier. Even weirder, if I refresh the window with the "error message",your melted siding shows up. Never seen that before.
