Vinyl siding is a popular choice among homeowners because it strikes an attractive balance between easy maintenance, low cost, and a relatively long lifespan. But not all vinyl siding products are the same, so when considering vinyl for your siding replacement project, make sure it has built-in insulation.
Let us share the benefits of insulated vinyl siding and why it’s a better choice over its common, uninsulated counterparts.
It makes your home more energy-efficient – Energy efficiency is achieved by preventing thermal transfer: heat loss during cold days, and heat gain during hot days. Proper insulation is key to reducing thermal transfer. Attics and most fenestrations (i.e. windows, doors, and skylights) already have built-in insulation, so your exterior walls and siding should have insulation to match. This is what makes insulated vinyl siding a good investment; by making your home more energy-efficient, it reduces your indoor heating and cooling requirements, leading to reduced energy consumption.
It doesn’t require repainting – Where typical vinyl siding requires a repaint every few years, our insulated vinyl siding doesn’t. The colors are already molded into the material, meaning you will never have to repaint the siding, nor will you ever have to worry about blistering, cracking, or peeling for the length of its service life. Whatever your planned exterior color combination is, you can be confident that you will achieve it with our wide selection of colors.
It’s virtually maintenance-free – Vinyl’s nearly zero-maintenance properties has always been its most attractive feature, which is not diminished even with added features like insulation. Cleaning only requires soapy water, a garden hose, and a long-handled brush for those hard-to-reach spots.
It’s more durable than typical vinyl siding – Traditional aluminum-and-vinyl siding isn’t exactly known for its durability. They easily get dented from being hit by hailstones, tree branches, and the occasional thrown baseball. The additional layer of insulation reinforces the siding and absorbs direct impact, and will keep your exterior looking like new years down the road.
