So, How Is Vinyl Siding Actually Made?

When it comes to your home, materials matter. Your house, after all, is one of the biggest investments you'll make in your life, and the elements that make up your home should be ready to stand guard and do their duties for many years to come.

Vinyl siding is an excellent way to enhance your home's aesthetic appeal. It is available in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and textures, and, in the long run, it can be much more affordable than natural wood options.

With all of these benefits and bonuses, you must be wondering how it's actually made. Here's a quick guide to help you understand vinyl siding better:

1. Silica sand, which is about the size of beach sand, is loaded onto a conveyor for processing. The sand is then ground down to a fine powder.

2. The sand is then smashed into small bits by way of a ball mill. Water helps to lubricate the process and ensure the sand is easy to pipe through the process.

3. The sand is placed into a tank where the excess liquid is drained off. The remaining product is about 80% sand.

4. Wood pulp is then introduced into the process, which helps keep the vinyl siding from becoming brittle.

5. Water is then added to the wood pulp to help it flow smoothly along the process, as well.

6. The sand, cement, and pulp mixture are then blended, along with a few additives that are meant to ensure the longevity of the final product.

7. This product is then sent through rollers, which squeeze out excess moisture and fuse the materials together, ultimately forming the beginnings of vinyl siding.

8. Another roller impresses the wood-like finish onto the boards, and a slicing machine cuts the materials.

9. The materials are baked in autoclave ovens where pressurized steam enhances the chemical reaction, curing the materials.
