Today, many residential roofing and siding manufacturers are moving to more eco-friendly practices. This makes it easier for homeowners to invest in products that were constructed in a sustainable way.
CertainTeed® is at the forefront of this trend, with their vinyl, polymer and insulated siding products all boasting a low environmental impact. To give you a better understanding of how CertainTeed ensures sustainable operations, A1 Siding & Roofing, a reputable siding and roofing contractor in the area, discusses three strategies that the company utilizes.
CertainTeed is careful about minimizing waste resulting from their manufacturing processes. Their facilities recycle water used during manufacturing, allowing them to save billions of gallons each year.
Moreover, CertainTeed’s vinyl, polymer and PVC products are recyclable. The company implements a “cradle-to-cradle” system wherein they retrieve post-consumer siding from builders and plants. They have over 200 vinyl recycling centers across the country to reclaim vinyl siding.
Most of the raw materials used by CertainTeed in making vinyl and polymer products are transported by rail. This reduces the need for over-the-road transportation as well as the emissions caused by such deliveries.
CertainTeed was the first manufacturer to conduct a Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) on each of its siding products. The results show that CertainTeed vinyl and polymer siding products have a lower environmental impact than other siding options.
