Today's Vinyl Siding: Verifiably Green
VSI has put a “colorful" twist on the typical white paper. The "green" paper, Today's Vinyl Siding: Verifiably Green, shows that vinyl siding has excellent environmental performance when compared to other exterior cladding, beating fiber cement and brick hands down and rivaling cedar siding.
Using recognized life cycle assessment tools and fact-based data, vinyl siding and insulated siding demonstrate remarkably better environmental performance than other exterior cladding.
