The Signature Styles of Our Favorite Name Brand Siding Companies
Alcoa (Mastic Siding): Long-Standing Reputation, Durable, and Eco Friendly
This brand has been operating since 1888. While the name changed not so long ago from Alcoa to Mastic, and is now a division of Ply Gem Residential Solutions©, its long-time signature style remains top-of-its class.
Over time, Mastic has developed an environmentally-friendly approach to vinyl siding manufacturing. The eco-friendly options provide products that Mastic claims contain about as much as 80 percent recycled material. According to the Quest brochure, “Mastic® vinyl siding is manufactured from two abundant natural resources: salt (57 percent)
and natural gas (43 percent).” (1)
From the manufacturing side, eco-friendly efforts are made when the company reuses unused materials in creating new materials. Additionally, the company claims they reuse pallets and other raw materials to prevent unneccessary filling of landfills.
Additionally, Mastic states its vinyl siding, when installed correctly and by a reputable contractor, reduces energy, never needs new coats of paint or staining, remains one of the lowest maintenance options on the market, and can greatly reduce thermal bridging.
