About Vinyl Siding
Vinyl siding was first introduced to the exterior cladding market in the early 1960s and steadily grew in popularity over the next four decades because of its durability, versatility and ease of maintenance. Vinyl siding is manufactured primarily from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a material that gives it impact resistance, rigidity and strength. PVC starts with two simple building blocks: chlorine (57%) from common salt and ethylene (43%) from natural gas. The natural gas utilized to manufacture ethylene is domestically produced, which reduces consumption of imported oil products.
Today, vinyl siding is the number one choice of exterior cladding across the United States and Canada. In fact, U.S. Census Bureau statistics show that since 1995 more homeowners clad their homes with vinyl siding than any other exterior cladding. Vinyl and other polymeric siding are available in a wide range of colors, profiles and architectural trim to assist architects, builders, remodelers and homeowners in customizing their new construction and remodeling designs.
