Benefits of Wood Siding
Wood surpasses concrete fiber board and vinyl in the following categories:
- Energy use
- Resource use
- Environment impact
- Green Building
Wood products require much less energy to produce than concrete or vinyl. An independent comparison of the energy needed to obtain, manufacture, transport and install building materials for identical wood frame, steel frame and concrete fiber board houses proves wood’s environmental superiority over alternative materials. The result is more fossil fuels saved with less air and water pollution.
- Although wood products make up 47% of all raw materials manufactured in the United States, its share of energy consumption during manufacturing is only 4%.
- Results show that the manufacture of wood materials use 53% less energy than vinyl and 120% less energy than concrete.
Wood product manufacturing produces far fewer greenhouse gases.
As the interest in “Green Building” grows, building rating systems such as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED™) have emerged as one way to rate the environmental impact of construction. These rating systems are founded on the four guiding principles of green building:
- Reducing energy use
- Reducing resource use
- Minimizing pollution
- Reducing environmental impact
Peace of Mind
Real Cedar’s unique “grown in the wood” preservative oil means that no chemical treatment is needed. The arsenic and copper compounds used to preserve other wood decking products can pose a serious health threat. In every sense Cedar is one of the safest choices for any yardscape.
Real Cedar’s durability is legendary. Its natural resistance to moisture and decay make it the ideal choice for a surface that is exposed to sun, rain, heat and cold all year round.
