Siding Tips/FAQs

Vinyl vs. Aluminum: Vinyl adopts many of the same qualities as aluminum; it has a low maintenance requirement and is a better insulator than wood. One large advantage favoring vinyl as opposed to aluminum is its durability. Vinyl is more resistant to dents and other types of harm than aluminum. Furthermore, there is absolutely no painting required and small scratches are not seen easily on vinyl.

“How would I save money with Fullback®V under my siding?”

I want you to close your eyes and imagine it’s winter. The cold winds biting at your skin, snow on the horizon, and your warm comfy house. With Fullback®V added to your siding, your home will be better insulated, reducing your energy bill and keeping you warm during those harsh winter months.

Nearly ¼ of your home’s wall surface is composed of uninsulated wooden studs. While insulation is provided between the walls and the stud, no insulation is overlaid on the studs themselves. Heat is able to quickly bypass the insulation in your home and seep out through the studs in a costly process known as thermal bridging.

According to the United States Department of Energy, the best time to add exterior insulation is when a homeowner is in the process of re-siding their home. By adding exterior insulation during your current re-siding job, you are saving time, money, and stress over future energy bills.
