Posted in: Vinyl Siding

When you’re adding new siding to your home, you should put a lot of thought into what kind of siding you choose. You want to make sure that your home will look great with this siding, and you need to know that it will be structurally sound. One quality of siding that homeowners often overlook is that it can significantly improve your home’s energy efficiency.

At Oakwood Exteriors, our Stevens Point exterior remodeling contractors recommend insulated vinyl siding to any homeowners who are interest in increasing their home’s energy efficiency. We can work with you to select vinyl siding that looks great with your home’s architectural features and design, and we can provide you with a high quality installation so that it stays in great shape for years to come.

Insulated vinyl siding offers a number of great benefits, and our professionals have put together a list of some of our favorites below.

1. Better Insulation Throughout Every Season

In the winter and in the summer, homeowners in Stevens Point and the surrounding areas work hard to keep their homes as energy efficient as possible. Heating and cooling costs are two of the biggest expenses that any homeowner has, so anything that can help keep those costs low is always welcome. Insulated vinyl siding acts as an exterior buffer to prevent heat transfer either into or out of your home, which can significantly reduce both your heating and cooling costs throughout every part of the year.

2. Additional Impact Resistance

Vinyl siding is exceptionally durable on its own. It’s ridged and virtually maintenance free, especially when compared to other exterior building materials. Adding insulation to vinyl siding, however, makes it even more durable as it increases the material’s impact resistance.

The insulation fills the hollow space between the piece of siding and the home’s walls and absorbs shocks, which prevents things like hail from damaging your siding. This saves you money on repairs and increases the lifespan of your siding.

3. Insect and Vermin Resistance

Since the polystyrene backing fills that gap between the siding and the walls of your Stevens Point home, insects and other vermin cannot live and nest behind the siding. And unlike wood and other kinds of natural siding, termites and other pests can’t feed on vinyl.

If you’re looking for energy efficient insulated vinyl siding, call Oakwood Exteriors at 715-432-8202, or fill out our online request form.
