You will also be able to identify the properties that make vinyl siding sustainable. Finally, you will be able to analyze the life cycle assessment of vinyl siding.
Enhancing Exteriors with Vinyl and Other Polymeric Siding
No matter what exterior cladding is selected, architects, designers and other building product specifiers want assurance that the homes they’re designing will look beautiful and are durable with the passage of time. Options for profile design, colors, and architectural trim and accessories continue to grow so that vinyl and other polymeric siding can be used to achieve virtually any architectural style. Vinyl siding is the only exterior cladding with both third-party product certification and certified installer programs, both of which will be reviewed in this course.
