What Is The Most Energy Efficient Siding Material?
Your home’s exterior cladding is at the forefront of the house’s performance against mother nature’s elements. It’s the first layer of the home that encounters rain, wind, snow, hail and anything else that the local climate can throw at it. Along with protecting your home’s internal layers from all of the outdoor elements and providing you comfort and peace of mind, your home’s exterior layer should insulate and raise the overall value of the home. And lastly, it should help reduce the strain on the HVAC system, helping lower energy bills or at least allow you to manage energy costs during the useful life of the siding. We’ve put together a great list of homeowners’ most popular exterior cladding materials and how they stack up against each other in the energy savings department.
