A siding replacement project is an excellent way to boost the appeal of your new home. However, the benefits of choosing the right type of siding don’t end there. Siding serves as the “skin” of your home, protecting your walls against exposure to the elements like rain, snow, hail and wind. Aside from all these known advantages, replacing your siding also has a surprising impact on your overall energy efficiency.
Energy efficiency depends greatly on the type of siding you choose. Let our exterior remodeling experts at Century Roofing and Siding Ltd. walk you through the many ways your siding can help you save money on your energy bills.
Improved Thermal Insulation
Vinyl naturally possesses high insulation ratings, making it a great choice for homes who want to strengthen the thermal envelope of their home. Royal has a wide selection of vinyl siding options that offer outstanding R-values in a range of different profiles. Haven® from Royal takes efficiency a step further by having a layer of insulated foam directly installed on the siding boards themselves.
Better Weather Resistance
Royal has also developed an extremely durable and weather-resistant cellular composite siding in Celect®. These siding boards combine high strength with excellent energy efficiency, saving you money on both your bills and maintenance needs. Furthermore, Celect comes in 15 different colors and 4 different profiles, helping to make your home look its best for longer.
Stronger Air Flow
If your siding installation is installed too tightly around your home, it could restrict your air flow. This could create a backdraft when you use vented appliances. A professional siding contractor should be able to conduct stress-tests to make sure that your siding boards are “breathable.” Ventilation regulates humidity levels indoors, which is an essential factor in determining energy efficiency.
