Insulated Siding

Insulated Siding

Increase comfort… save money.

Insulated siding helps protect your come from the extremes of heat and cold, increasing your comfort and saving energy costs. This type of siding includes rigid foam insulation, fused behind the exterior surface of the wall, for the purpose of reducing energy consumption, increasing the insulation value of the wall system, and improving the stability and appearance of the siding. It’s permeable nature also allows your exterior cladding to “breathe” thereby providing protection against rot, mold, and mildew.

Insulated siding is considered a “green” building product due to its ability to reduce energy consumption and landfill contributions, as it is manufactured to last 50 years or more.

American Windows & Siding offers several types of insulated siding:

About R-Value

The R-value is a measure of thermal resistance used in the construction industry. It depends on a solid material’s resistance to conductive heat transfer; the higher the value of R, the more effective the insulation. Did you know that insulated siding boasts an average R-value of 2.0 – 5.5, ranking it significantly better at reducing energy transfer than other siding products?  However, remember that R-values quoted by manufacturers only apply to properly installed insulation products.
