Insulated Vinyl Siding






Insulation is Rated by R-Value

An R-value is a measure of a material’s resistance to airflow. A vinyl siding with a higher R-value will be more energy efficient and keep your house warmer in the winter. Although vinyl siding with additional insulation can be expensive, future energy savings will likely offset the higher initial cost.

R-Value of Vinyl Siding



Insulated siding typically has an R-value of 2.0 to 3.5 whereas most vinyl siding has an R-value of less than 1.0.

1. Insulated Siding: R2.0 to R3.5

2. Uninsulated Siding: Less than R1.0

Why Does it Matter?

There are several reasons why insulating your siding is beneficial:

1. The higher the R-value of your siding, the more energy efficient your home will be. Energy savings generally translate to lower heating and cooling bills.

2. Foamed back vinyl will help to resist cracking.

3. Insulated siding helps to dampen outside sounds (street noise, airplanes, or just some teenager playing loud music next door).
