Energy Efficiency

  • Vinyl siding requires less energy to manufacture per square foot than brick and mortar.
  • Vinyl siding is lighter weight per square than other cladding options, so it requires less fuel to transport. Less fuel used means less pollution.
  • When correctly installed, the Structure® Home Insulation SystemTM can reduce thermal bridging and help meet the requirements of an ENERGY STAR®Qualified new home.
  • The Structure® Home Insulation SystemTM in a Double 6″ profile has an R-value3 of R-3.0 using the testing method ASTM C1363, as specified by the Federal Trade Commission.
  • V-Groove soffit and roof and eave vents support proper attic ventilation efforts, which moderates attic temperatures and improves a home’s energy efficiency. V-Groove metal soffit provides the most net-free ventilation per linear foot of any aluminum soffit system.



  • Vinyl siding is durable and requires no site finish. This siding stands up to the weather with virtually no maintenance. Our Designer Accents use thicker construction and a baked lacquer finish to ensure that they hold up season after season.
  • When installed properly and under normal use, our products should never require painting or staining. They won’t crack, peel, blister, or rot.
  • All of our vinyl siding aluminum accessories are easily recyclable. In fact, at the end of its lifecycle in building applications, 100% of the aluminum can be recycled.
