          Environmentally-Friendly Homes

          Eight Reasons why Vinyl Cladding is a Green Choice for Your Home

          Vinyl was first developed back in the 1920’s, and quickly became a common element in many products, including wall siding. Vinyl has since emerged as the world’s second most used plastic, but unlike its counterparts, vinyl has many environmentally-friendly features.

          Here’s a list of 8 reasons why vinyl siding is a wise choice for your house and the environment:

          1. Environmentally Sustainable
          The main element of vinyl is Chlorine, which is made from salt. This makes up almost 60% of vinyl’s chemical structure, and is a sustainable and cost-effective product.

          2. Less Energy During Manufacturing
          Vinyl cladding manufacturing uses less than half of the energy required to produce bricks and mortar. Vinyl cladding also uses less fuel during transportation as it’s lighter than bricks and mortar.

          3. Solid Foam Insulated
          Prestige Exteriors’ Duratuff Select Vinyl Cladding comes with a pre-installed solid foam insulation backing. This CFC-free high-rating insulation will help reduce the heating and cooling energy bill, saving money and having less impact on the environment.

          4. Long-Lasting
          Adding to its environmental credentials, vinyl cladding is very durable, meaning it spends longer on your house and less in a landfill. Confidence is so high in Duratuff Select vinyl wall cladding that we offer a lifetime guarantee.

          5. Reduced Impact Maintenance
          Unlike other products available, vinyl cladding never requires painting, which not only saves you time and money on labour costs, but circumvents the environmental damage from continuous painting. In addition, only a mild soap and water is needed for periodic cleaning which means that you are not responsible for releasing harmful chemicals into the environment.

          6. Recyclable
          Recyclability is a key factor in vinyl’s sustainability. In America, more than 1 billion pounds of vinyl was recycled in the last year. In addition, much of the waste from manufacturing can be recycled straight back into the manufacturing process.

          7. Less Waste during Installation
          Compared to other types of exterior cladding and exterior materials, the installation of vinyl siding generates very little waste.

          8. Releases fewer toxic chemicals than other exterior cladding through life-cycle
          Vinyl cladding emits significantly lower levels of toxic chemicals, including mercury and silver, into the environment, in comparison to other types of exterior cladding.

          Protecting the future of our environment and your home.

          As protecting the environment for a sustainable future continues to become a focus in society, vinyl cladding delivers many recognised benefits which make it a green choice for your home.

          Prestige Exteriors is a leading supplier of vinyl cladding in Queensland. We choose to install only Duratuff Select vinyl wall cladding, which comes with a fifty year transferable manufacturer’s warranty! We clad directly over wood or fibro to leave a beautiful, colourfast and lasting impression. Available in thirteen colours.
