Dear Dwell:

I've already found a company that will recycle my old vinyl siding. Now I'm looking for a fresh, sustainable alternative. Any suggestions?

Production practices, longevity, and recycled content should also be among your criteria. here are some options to put your well-clad house on the best-dressed list.
