This program is registered with the AIA for 1 CEH. No matter what exterior cladding is selected, architects, designers and other building product specifiers want assurance that the homes they’re designing will look beautiful and are durable with the passage of time. Vinyl siding is the most popular exterior cladding in the United States and Canada for new construction and remodeling, as it is engineered for sustainability to meet today’s environmental challenges and new technologies allow vinyl and other polymeric siding to beautifully replicate woods, without wood’s maintenance issues or high cost. Options for profile design, colors, and architectural trim and accessories continue to grow so that vinyl and other polymeric siding can be used to achieve virtually any architectural style. Vinyl siding is the only exterior cladding with both third-party product certification and certified installer programs, both of which will be reviewed in this course. Take the course.
