When you are deciding on a siding material for your home, there are plenty of factors to take into consideration. You want something that is affordable and still long-lasting, and you also want to choose something that has minimal impact on the environment. From the durability and energy-efficiency to whether the materials are sustainable and recyclable, there are many different aspects that go into making an environmentally-responsible product. It’s important to keep in mind that choosing a green siding for your home is good not only for the environment but can even help you save money on heating and cooling bills.
In this blog post, we are going to discuss the many reasons that TruLog™ steel siding is the green choice. Continue reading to learn more and when you are ready to have the log home of your dreams and the confidence that your home is environmentally-friendly, contact TruLog™ for an estimate.
Our steel siding will last up to 30 years. That means you won’t have to routinely replace your siding, which isn’t just better for your wallet, but also for the environment. When siding lasts longer, it means you are putting fewer materials into the landfill.
The steel siding from TruLog™ is completely recyclable, so when you do need to replace it after a few decades, none of it will actually end up in a landfill. Instead, your siding can go to a recycling center to be made into other materials, and maybe even into new TruLog™ steel siding.
Made from 70% Recycled Materials
It wasn’t just enough for our siding to be recyclable, we also make our steel siding from a minimum of 70% recycled materials. We care about the environment and want to leave the world a better place for our children and we show it in every step of production from design to manufacturing.
We chose steel not only for its durability and strength but also because it is a sustainable material. Steel requires very little energy to produce and even the by-products and waste created in the steel-making process are reusable. Steel can also be recycled over and over again, endlessly.
TruLog™ steel siding is energy-efficient in a couple of different ways. Our steel siding has a contoured foam backer that increases your home’s insulation to an R-4, which means that it helps keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Our steel siding is also ENERGY STAR® compliant and features CoolPaint Technology™, which reflects the heat from the sun away from your home. TruLog™ steel siding can help you save money on your heating and cooling bills and reduce your carbon footprint.
TruLog™ steel siding doesn’t have to be re-painted, re-stained, re-sealed, or re-chinked. It doesn’t have to be treated to keep away termites or prevent rot. Every time you treat your siding, you are leaving behind a carbon footprint, whether it’s from emissions from the paint or stain or due to the extra waste. TruLog™ doesn’t require you to do any maintenance like other types of siding, so even over time, your steel siding will continue to be green and environmentally-friendly.
