We have gotten some calls this month about our insulated vinyl siding. For those of you who have never heard of it, it is foam insulation bonded to the vinyl siding planks. The benefit of insulated siding is that it protects your home more efficiently than traditional vinyl siding alone. Did you know that you have an energy leak all year long if you have traditional vinyl siding? About 25% of your home’s outside surface is made up of studs with insulation in-between the studs. Unfortunately the studs are not insulated and this is where the energy leak occurs. Insulated siding protects your home like a blanket and makes it more energy efficient. It also makes your home quieter – great if you live on a busy street. Insulated siding is colorfast and it is stronger than
than traditional vinyl siding because of the foam layer of insulation making it more rigid.
