The green side of vinyl siding
Builders and remodelers have long forgotten the notion that vinyl siding is “plastic”, and therefore bad for the environment. Truth is, vinyl made from a Super Polymer formulation is low-maintenance and requires no staining, painting or caulking. That alone significantly reduces the short and long-term environmental impact. Vinyl siding also resists fading, cracking and thermal expansion and contraction. And according to Builders for Environmental and Economic Sustainability (BEES®) studies show vinyl outperforms most other claddings by a substantial margin. Among the worst environmental performers are brick, stucco and fiber cement siding. Vinyl siding is available in a wide range of patterns and colors to complement a home’s surroundings.
