Vinyl siding does not require painting, staining or caulking. This lowers the cost of maintenance and avoids releasing harmful solvents into the environment. Generally, your vinyl siding can be cleaned satisfactorily through the use of an ordinary garden hose. The ability to return scrap and off-spec materials into vinyl siding’s manufacturing process results in virtually no manufacturing waste. Durability is the key to sustainability: the NAHB has cited “Lifetime” as the estimated life expectancy of vinyl siding on a home.
First of all, vinyl siding is very cost-saving. Its curb appeal is self-evident, and will stay that way, because of the second reason for choosing vinyl: maintenance. Basically, it is maintenance-free. Not many alternatives can credibly make that claim. Vinyl Siding exteriors are great, not just for beauty- but for a lifetime as well!
