Here are some of the ways our vinyl siding solutions positively contribute to the environment:
Minimized Carbon Footprints
We use CertainTeed vinyl products because they meet the strict standards set by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) for sustainability. From their production to actual performance, our products help reduce greenhouse emissions.
Compared to other materials, vinyl leads the way in energy efficiency. Our CertainTeed vinyl siding systems can increase your home’s R-value, which is the ultimate measure of your home’s ability to resist heat transfer. As a result, your exterior walls will preserve your desired indoor climate while lowering your utility bills.
Unlike other products, CertainTeed vinyl siding solutions are made from 80% post-consumer or recycled materials. The brand’s initiative to repurpose serviceable scraps from old panels is a huge step toward conserving relatively limited resources. Although vinyl is man-made, its chief components are derived from crude oil (ethylene) and regular salt (chlorine), which are both natural ingredients. In addition, recycling old materials, when done right, often requires less energy than manufacturing new ones.
At Vinylume, we make every effort to keep waste byproducts during installation to a minimum. We like to follow the lead of CertainTeed’s processes, which mitigate waste generation. This is our way of slowing down the fast congestion of landfills and reducing the demand for newly manufactured products. After every job, we collect our scraps and use them for future projects.
Considering the climatic quirks of Connecticut, it pays to wrap your home with one of the most eco-friendly siding materials ever invented. Call Vinylume today at (866) 244-8029 for your FREE, no-obligation consultation and estimate.
