Making Your Home More Eco-Friendly with Vinyl Siding
One of the most notable advantages to vinyl siding is its sustainability. These days, nearly everyone is concerned with reducing their carbon footprint and the advent of so-called “green” home remodeling methods have become exceedingly popular, and for good reason. With the vinyl siding that we offer at Alure Home Improvements, you can enjoy exterior cladding that is not only extremely attractive and easy to maintain but also energy efficient and eco-friendly.
Here are just a few of the ways in which vinyl siding is an environmentally conscious product. Vinyl siding:
- Can be backed by a layer of insulation, which limits energy waste and boasts the home’s overall R-value. As a result, it can be easier for the home’s central climate control system to keep the temperature of the home regulated and may lead to savings on heating and cooling costs.
- Generates minimal waste during the manufacturing process since excess vinyl can be reground and reused, making the process extremely efficient.
- Is far less wasteful in the installation process when compared to other exterior cladding such as brick veneer, which can lead to thousands of pounds of excess building material.
- Is extremely durable and designed to withstand years of wear and tear. If the siding material stays on your home, it doesn’t enter a landfill.
What’s more, residential structures that are equipped with vinyl siding from Alure Home Improvements may achieve significant points in green building certification programs, such as the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED® for New Construction and LEED® Homes Rating Systems and the ANSI approved ICC 700-2008 National Green Building Standardâ„¢.
If you are interested in remodeling the exterior of your home, vinyl siding may be a sensible choice. And, since our siding is available in a wide variety of colors and styles, you’re sure to find the ideal siding option for your home at Alure Home Improvements.
