|The latest research indicates that climbing ivies do not harm siding. However, it's possible the ivy could stain the vinyl -- a problem should you ever decide to remove the ivy. I would call the company that installed the siding and see if they have any recommendations. Make sure the warranty won't be invalidated if you grow ivy on the siding.
