Do You Need New Siding?
Knowing when to replace old siding is a common challenge homeowners face, and we generally recommend replacing it proactively based on the expected lifespan of the current siding material. There may also be signs that the siding wore out sooner than expected or that you perhaps waited too long. These can include missing or loose panels, cracks and gaps in the siding material, and any signs of excess moisture, such as rot or fungal or mold growth. You should also keep an eye on your energy bill as skyrocketing heating and cooling costs could indicate an underlying issue with your siding.
The Benefits of Insulated Siding
The primary reason that homeowners invest in insulated siding is that it increases the thermal resistance of the siding and thus improves the building envelope. In order words, your home will be easier to cool and heat and more comfortable and consistent. Another big advantage is that it makes the siding sturdier and thus less prone to damage from impacts, such as stones thrown from a lawn mower. Finally, it helps to keep out unwanted noise and can actually decrease noise levels by as much as 45%.

Your Vinyl Siding Options
Insulated siding is a fundamental siding type, and it’s available in a wide range of styles. We often install siding by CertainTeed, and it offers traditional insulated vinyl siding but also Board & Batten, Mainstreet, and Monogram.
Traditional vinyl siding is designed to look like classic clapboard. It’s available in many colors while also being affordable, durable, versatile, and energy efficient while requiring little to no maintenance.
Board and batten differs from traditional vinyl siding in that the panels are vertically rather than horizontally oriented. You can achieve a rustic look this way, but it’s also used in many modern design trends as well.
Mainstreet is CertainTeed’s most popular siding and is offered in clapboard and Dutch lap designs. It’s sturdier and more energy efficient than traditional siding and is offered in two dozen unique colors.
Insulated vs. Regular Vinyl Siding
The main difference between insulated siding and standard vinyl siding is the foam core. The products are otherwise the same. An insulated vinyl siding product is going to cost more than a non-insulated product, and the installation costs may be a little higher as well. That said, the insulated product will cost you less over its life due to lower heating and cooling costs and added longevity.
Green Eco Solutions appreciates that having new insulated siding installed can be a big investment, and we aim to make it more affordable through the financing options we offer.
