5 Reasons to Invest in Insulated Vinyl Siding

If there’s one thing you should invest in to upgrade your home exterior, it would be insulated vinyl siding. Not only will it help keep your home a comfortable temperature year-round, it’s also energy efficient, low maintenance and will enhance your curb appeal. Gentek’s Sequoia Select EnFusion siding is everything you’re looking for in an insulated vinyl siding. It combines beauty, protection, minimal maintenance and energy efficiency, making it perfect for today’s busy lifestyle. Made with durable, solid-colour vinyl, it never needs to be painted and won’t warp or rot. You get a worry-free exterior that looks just as good as it performs.

Have we convinced you yet? Here are 5 reasons to invest in insulated vinyl siding.

1. Energy Savings

Energy savings is high on homeowners’ must-have lists these days, and for good reason. Higher energy efficiency means better energy savings and lower energy bills for you. Gentek’s EnFusion siding is crafted with energy saving technology that shields your home from inclement weather and energy loss. The vinyl panel features EPS (expanded polystyrene) rigid foam insulation, creating a blanket of thermal protection to shield your home.

2. Sustainability

On top of being energy efficient, insulated vinyl siding is also environmentally and economically friendly. From lower installation and transportation costs to simple upkeep and minimal maintenance costs, it’s clear that vinyl siding is the way to go. Lower maintenance means eliminating painting, staining and sealing, which means it won’t release harmful solvents into the environment. On top of that, vinyl siding helps conserve natural resources used as building materials such as cedar and wood and is overall more environmentally friendly than brick and fiber cement.

3. Home Comfort

Your home should be a place you love to spend time in, but you can’t do that without a comfortable indoor temperature. Insulated vinyl siding ensures your home stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It protects your home from the harsh elements, improving the comfort of your home no matter the temperature outside. Did you know that wall studs make up roughly 25% of the wall surface of an average home and 40% of heat loss can occur through wall studs where there’s no insulation? Sequoia Select EnFusion eliminates this issue, insulating over the frame of your home and blocking surfaces where heat loss occurs.

4. Sound Comfort

Noise from outside your home can interfere with family time, alone time and overall everyday activities you enjoy. It can even mess with your sleep patterns. Gentek’s EnFusion siding softens noise outside, with its high-density insulation, providing your home with quiet comfort. You may be surprised just how quiet and peaceful your home can be without the distraction of outdoor construction, lawn mowers, passing cars, barking dogs, etc.

5. Minimal Maintenance

The last thing you want is to invest in siding that requires a considerable amount of maintenance – this means more time and money on your end. Insulated vinyl siding is virtually maintenance free, so it never needs to be painted and it won’t rot or warp. All you have to do is rinse it off with a garden hose now and again to remove airborne dust and dirt.
