Conserving Natural Resources
Stains and Chemical Preservatives
Although EPA & its agency has continued working on risk assessment, the potential unknown risk of the chemical & wood preservatives used to protect wood from rot and pests that leech into the soil and water supplies could be a threat to the environment as well as health concern for people and pets.
Even if you aren’t using pre-treated lumber, the maintenance and upkeep of traditional wood decks and porches requires the use of toxic finishes like stain and paint, which you’ll have to use annually to maintain the surface and safety of your deck.
PVC building products are 100% recyclable. Above you see the resin identification code (RIC) of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) according to Society of the Plastics Industry (SPI).
At the end of their long lives, our PVC products can be recycled into other high quality products like pipes, window profiles, flooring, roofing membranes, and coated fabrics.
