Norandex Siding

The new company name
for Reynolds Siding products is Norandex Building Materials
Distribution and since Reynolds merged with Norandex, the company is
referred to as Norandex / Reynolds.

According to
Norandex/Reynolds, no other cladding choice combines the aesthetic
versatility, low maintenance, performance and environmentally
friendly attributes of that delivered by vinyl siding. The company
also asserts that the use of vinyl siding has doubled, a fact that
was corroborated by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2004.

The reasons for this
tremendous growth in popularity include all the choices in trim and
accent options, more styles and finishes, and a full spectrum of
colors that help to achieve the ideal exterior style for any type of
home in any neighborhood, from historic to contemporary.

The colors of vinyl
siding, once only available in very traditional pastels and earthy
colors, have become darker, bolder and richer in tones like deep red,
dark green, deep blues and more. The Norandex/Reynolds colors feature
unsurpassed color retention.

The vinyl products of
today are also a great value, offering the lowest installed cost and
the lowest life cycle cost over the life of a home. Vinyl requires no
painting and very low maintenance. In fact, according to a Cost vs.
Value Report in a 2005 issue of Remodeling Magazine, homeowners who
reside their homes with vinyl siding typically recover nearly 95% of
their cost when selling their homes.

With the ability to
withstand high winds and a composition that resists heat, cold and
moisture, vinyl siding retains its great looks over time. Vinyl
siding never needs paint. The only maintenance it will need is a
simple wash with a soft cloth and garden hose to keep it looking
great, a feature today’s strapped-for-time homeowners totally
appreciate!

No matter the color of
vinyl siding, it’s green. Vinyl siding uses minimal raw material in
production, and nearly all scrap is reprocessed into new vinyl
products
– meaning nearly zero waste. Additionally, because
there is no need for paint, stain, caulk, etc. maintenance-related
toxins are reduced.

According to Norandex, no other cladding choice combines the aesthetic versatility, low-maintenance, performance and environmentally-friendly attributes of vinyl siding.
