Environmental Benefits and Safety of Using NextStone™ Polyurethane Siding

Updated on May 24, 2024

In today’s world, sustainability and environmental responsibility are more important than ever. Homeowners and builders are increasingly seeking materials that not only perform well but also minimize environmental impact. NextStone™ polyurethane siding offers a compelling alternative to traditional stone, delivering both aesthetic appeal and substantial environmental benefits.

Environmental Impact

Use of Recycled Materials

NextStone™ products are manufactured using recycled materials, which means they do not deplete natural resources. This approach significantly reduces the environmental footprint compared to traditional stone, which requires extensive quarrying and processing activities. Harvesting rock, clay, and natural stone materials consumes massive amounts of energy and resources, often leading to environmental degradation. By opting for NextStone™, you support a sustainable manufacturing process that prioritizes resource conservation.

Energy Efficiency

One of the standout features of NextStone™ siding is its R-Value of 4.5 per inch of thickness. R-Value measures a material’s ability to resist heat transfer, effectively adding insulation value to any building. This additional insulation helps reduce energy costs by naturally decreasing the heating and cooling demands of a home or commercial building. As a result, NextStone™ not only enhances comfort but also contributes to energy savings, thereby reducing the overall carbon footprint.

Durability and Weather Resistance

NextStone™ panels are made solid throughout and reinforced with recycled PVC, making them highly resistant to weathering. They are designed to withstand extreme environmental conditions, including radical temperature changes, varying levels of precipitation, and other harsh climatic factors. This durability ensures a long lifespan for the product, reducing the need for frequent replacements and further conserving resources.

Safety Considerations


Safety is a critical aspect of any building material, and NextStone™ excels in this regard. The products are rated Non-Flammable, meaning they will not hold a flame and will not burn once the flame source is removed. This characteristic enhances the safety of buildings clad with NextStone™, providing an extra layer of protection against fire hazards.

Fire Retardants

NextStone™ products are manufactured with built-in fire retardants, adding an additional layer of safety. This feature makes these panels a reliable choice for both residential and commercial applications where fire safety is paramount.


NextStone™ polyurethane siding offers a sustainable, energy-efficient, and safe alternative to traditional stone. By utilizing recycled materials, enhancing energy efficiency through superior insulation, and providing robust resistance to environmental factors, NextStone™ stands out as an environmentally responsible choice. Additionally, its non-flammable nature and incorporation of fire retardants make it a secure option for any building project. For those looking to minimize their environmental impact without sacrificing quality or safety, NextStone™ is an excellent solution.
