Vinyl Siding – a greener choice

By admin on August 19, 2012 in Siding, Soffit and Fascia with 0 comments

As homeowners it feels great to make purchase decisions based on environmentally products and benefits. It’s even better when these products don’t break the bank and last for generations to come. Vinyl siding is one such product that is a smart and “greener” choice.

Our Gentek vinyl siding is performance-engineered to ensure premium product quality and a long service life. Vinyl siding also helps conserve wood and other natural resources often used in home construction, and because it never needs refinishing, it eliminates the need for paint, stain, and other annual maintenance-related products that can have a cumulative, negative effect on the environment. It also saves the energy and resources required to manufacture and dispose of these materials.

Vinyl siding installed with an insulating underlayment can achieve higher R-values to help keep homes warmer in winter and cooler in summer with greater thermal efficiency – a top priority for today’s homeowners! One such product is the Prodigy line of Ultra Premium siding.

Vinyl siding is a good choice because it…
• Is friendlier to the environment than brick, stucco and fiber cement in terms of air pollution caused by production, fossil fuel consumption and global warming impact.
• Is eco-friendly because vinyl resin is derived largely from common salt – a sustainable and abundant natural resource.
• Can contribute to achieving points in leading green building certification programs; insulated vinyl siding may help earn significantly more points.
• Is a durable product that’s engineered to last a “lifetime” on the home.*
