The production of vinyl siding contributes to a wide range of health and environmental problems. The production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) which is the basic element in all vinyl products exposes workers to a multitude of hazardous chemicals. These chemicals include chlorine gas, which can cause eye and skin irritation and breathing difficulties in the short term and possible lung disease from prolonged exposure.
Meanwhile, according to Greenpeace, the production process releases other dangerous chemicals, such as dioxin, into the environment that surrounds PVC factories. Dioxin nearly wiped out the Bald Eagle in the lower 48 states, and has been linked to cancer, endometriosis, neurological damage, immune system damage, respiratory problems, liver and kidney damage, and last, birth defects in humans.
As I have mentioned more than once in MAXWALLPRO blogs when vinyl siding burns as in a house fire it releases dangerous toxins which could enter the interior of the building causing great harm to any person who breaths it in. Fire fighters are hesitant to enter burning homes that have vinyl siding installed on the premises due to possible health risks. MAXWALPRO has installed our Steel Siding System on Fire Fighters homes where the entire house was covered in vinyl siding. The vinyl siding was torn off and then MAXWALLPRO’s Steel Siding System was installed. The Fire Fighters were delighted with how their homes looked as well as feeling great relief in having the vinyl siding removed.
Please check out our MAXWALLPRO Product Comparison page on this website where you can see that MAXWALLPRO’s Steel Siding Systems outperform vinyl siding and cement board to a great extent. You will be immensely pleased with your purchase, not to mention how great your home or building will look.
