Vinyl is one of the most cost-effective and weather-resistant siding materials, and as its popularity as an efficient, long-lasting material has grown, so have the features available. One such feature is built-in insulation, and it’s quickly becoming a favorite among green homeowners.

Not only does insulated vinyl siding have all the longevity of its traditional vinyl counterparts, it also has a layer of added protection from harsh weather, reducing your energy costs while keeping your home beautiful.

Key Features of Vinyl Siding

  • Water-Resistance: Vinyl is a popular choice in areas with heavy rains, often mimicking the look of wood without the risk of rotting. The EPS foam normally used in the insulation doesn’t absorb moisture, keeping your exterior dry year-round.
  • Impact-Resistance:  Vinyl siding is far more durable than its hollow counterparts, offering better impact resistance to reduce dents in the surface associated with sleet, storm debris, and woodpeckers.
  • Fire Resistance: Vinyl is composed of polyvinyl chloride, making it one of the most fire retardant materials you can use for the exterior of your home.
  • Cost: Insulated vinyl prices can vary by type, brand, and color, but is generally more affordable than other styles—especially when you factor in reduced heating and cooling costs over time.
  • Installation: Vinyl siding should always be installed by a professional to ensure maximum longevity. Because it typically comes in large sheets, installation is much faster than other materials.
  • Maintenance: This siding material involves virtually no maintenance. Some occasional cleaning is all you need to keep your vinyl beautiful for years to come.

When to Replace Your Vinyl Siding

Cracked, broken, or warped vinyl is a pretty good indicator that you should replace your vinyl siding rather than repair it. Should your insulated vinyl siding start to look uneven, consult a professional to see whether a deeper issue, like leakage, is at play. Small cracks from impact can easily be replaced without requiring completely new siding. Replacement panels are usually available from your manufacturer.
