Despite all the benefits of vinyl siding, it’s still surrounding by a number of misconceptions. Learn what those are from one of the area’s leading residential and commercial roofing contractors.

Myth: Vinyl Siding Is Not Eco-Friendly 

All kinds of materials have an impact on the environment around them. It’s just a matter of how they perform over time and what upkeep they require. Vinyl siding is long-lasting and doesn’t require as much maintenance. You also don’t need to use abrasive cleaners to maintain its looks. Since vinyl siding can last for decades, it helps prevent the use of contaminants, such as paint. Long-lasting materials help the environment.

Myth: Vinyl Siding Emits Dioxin

Dioxin is a harmful gas emitted when burning certain things. However, manufacturing vinyl siding doesn’t create this toxic gas. Also, the amount of dioxin that ends up in the atmosphere each year by vinyl siding is less than half of the total dioxin released into the atmosphere.
