I like this recommendation! There's no bias on the possible materials you can use as sidings for your house. Even though some comparisons were made, the fact that they support USGBC's statement that none of these materials are listed as the best or the worst material for the environment makes it unbiased.

This is a very good read. Useful resource for those who are environment enthusiast. It is best to use renewable materials and cause less damage to the environment. It is efficient and sustainable to use such materials. With proper study and research I believe that people will learn to utilize materials that have the same durability and strength of vinyl but is more eco-friendly.

Yes, wood is the best choice. It's green, healthy and reliable. You know, covering all your house with wood can be pricey. But it definitely worth it!


Wonderful read! I agree. The solution is always how it would efficiently fit the house. Not only for it's environmental advantage but also the usual weather in the location, aesthetic properties and affordability.

House Siding

I agree with your information, It's very informative and useful. Thanks for sharing information.

Well, it may be a "play safe" statement coming from them. The only way a house can be called "green" is if the sidings are efficiently placed.
