Why Vinyl – Durability

SolarDefence Reflective Technology

House details up closeThe Evolution of Siding

SolarDefense Reflective Technology- Provides protection against the UV Rays from fading and heat damage. The newer, darker colors available have been engineered with the patent-pending technology to aid in lasting beauty and durability.

The Best Protection for The Boldest Colors

Dark colors tend to absorb heat instead of reflect it. The new, dark colors are formulated to do the opposite by reflecting the heat. This helps the siding from becoming distorted and the colors from fading from direct sunlight.

SolarDefense Reflective TechnologyTM is proven to be effective, so much in fact that they back their newer, dark colors against the outdoor elements with an unmatched No Fade, No Distortion Promise.*

Vinyl siding manufacturers put  their products under extreme testing, such as:
  • Oil Can Test- To ensure that the siding does not buckle or warp, the siding panels are placed under heat lamps and saturated to 120° -140°F
  • Rigidity- The unique design of the panels are engineered to have more ridges so the siding remains straight on the wall.
  • Vertical Height Impact Test -This test puts the product’s durability and ability to resist direct impact from force — the results of the test help to improve the correct thickness, formulation and impact modifiers.
