Sustainability

A sustainable siding choice minimizes impact on the environment through reducing plastic vinyl waste. Steel siding has the added benefit of being highly recyclable at the end of its long lifecycle.

Energy Efficiency

The right siding can reflect up to 60% of the sun’s rays, reducing heat transfer to the home. While there is no Energy Star rating applicable to sidewalls, some types of siding can perform with the same energy efficiency at cool roof paint systems.

Lifetime Protection

Siding can last a lifetime. And when it does, that means less maintenance, better protection for the home, and less waste over the life of your home.

Health and Safety
Some common siding alternatives actually do pose major health risks:

  • Fiber cement contributes to toxic silicosis, a disabling and sometimes fatal lung disease, as well as other diseases. That’s because installing fiber cement siding releases silica dust, which in sufficient amounts can cause silicosis. Smoking may increase these risks.
  • Vinyl is composed primarily of PVC (polyvinyl chloride), a toxic chemical thought to cause cancer in humans. Many communities are moving away from vinyl siding due to its toxicity and the fact that it is not considered a green product. In terms of health, materials like factory-painted steel don’t off-gas, and there is no future need to repaint steel siding, because paint adheres well. In addition, steel siding contributes to the safety of the home’s occupants by offering superior fire resistance. And steel siding is safe for the environment as well.
