Vinyl as …… “Sustainable”
Since the late 1980’s, several Life Cycle Analysis have been completed on PVC Building Materials, often comparing to other competing materials. PVC products were found to perform favorably, which means fewer resources.
Vinyl as …… “Green”

Vinyl as …… “Warm”
Vinyl is an efficient insulating material for both warm and cold. It is able to maintain a more even temperature, which will minimize the appearance of condensation. In addition, the design of vinyl widows provides additional “dead air” spaces with hollows in the product to provide additional insulating value.
Vinyl as …… “Simple”
