The Features and Benefits of Vinyl

Vinyl is among the most popular siding materials because of the myriad benefits it offers. It saves work because it eliminates the hassle of repainting the house—or the expenses for paying someone else to do it. Here are some of the other features and benefits of vinyl:

Durable

Due to its strength and ability to resist moisture and abrasion, vinyl is the most widely used type of plastic for building and construction. It is the ideal material for windows, roofing, decking, fencing, and siding in Woodbridge, NJ homes. Unlike many other materials, vinyl will not rot or corrode, and mild detergent and water is enough to keep it looking its best.

Energy Efficient

Largely derived from salt, vinyl is the most energy-efficient plastic. Vinyl products use less and save more energy, and generate fewer emissions than many competitive products.

Inert and Stable

The corrosive conditions found in landfills will not break down or degrade vinyl products. In fact, this material is used to make landfill caps and liners because it is inert and stable.

Recyclable

From scrap and trim to off-spec material, almost everything from the vinyl production process can be recycled. Manufactured vinyl is rarely sent to landfills; 99% of it is turned into products. Moreover, up to 18 million pounds of post-consumer vinyl are recycled yearly. Post-consumer material is rarely available because pipe and vinyl siding in Carteret, NJ, among other products, can last for decades.

Friendly to the Atmosphere

Once chlorine is processed into vinyl, it becomes chemically locked into the product. Even so, this material will not release chlorine gas into the atmosphere, even when landfilled, recycled, or disposed of in a modern incinerator.
