Is Insulated Vinyl Siding Worth the Extra Cost?
Insulated vinyl siding is standard vinyl siding with a backing of solid rigid-foam insulation. When faced with the decision of whether to invest in insulated vinyl siding, many homeowners are unsure if the extra cost is worth it. While the initial cost can be more for insulated vinyl siding than standard vinyl siding, there are many benefits of the added insulation, including enhanced:
- Energy efficiency – Installing insulated vinyl siding is like wrapping your whole home in a blanket, keeping warm air inside during the winter and outside during the summer. This helps reduce the burden on an HVAC system to maintain comfortable interior temperatures year round, which can potentially help lower your monthly heating and cooling costs.
- Appearance – Insulated vinyl siding has contoured foam that helps give support to the siding panel and provide sharp, crisp profile lines. And, because the foam helps level the wall under new siding, the imperfections that can occur when homes settle and walls shift over time are hidden.
- Strength – Contoured foam insulation helps protect insulated vinyl siding from impact damage, whereas non-insulated vinyl siding leaves a hollow void between the siding and the wall, allowing the panel to be susceptible to impact damage from baseballs, rocks thrown from lawnmowers, and other projectiles.
Because insulated vinyl siding can help you save on energy costs and is impact-resistant, minimizing the amount you’ll spend on repairs over time, insulated vinyl siding can certainly be worth the initial cost for many homeowners.
