Insulated or Non-Insulated Vinyl Siding?


the insulation thats attached to the siding is ''not just tacked'' as you say,it is firmly held in place between the panel lock

and the installation detail is all the foam is butted,there are no big gaps between the foam


and Gary please when you reply to me don't give me all those links,it's kind of annoying

Insulated or Non-Insulated Vinyl Siding?


Sorry about that. No more links for you. Ventilating air pockets, water channels, fire-retardant and bug resistant insulation, now if it was fire retardant and non-fading vinyl that still looks good after 10 years, it would be a quality product. (My opinion). With no air movement and an insulating air film, one would still need a foam board for the required exterior insulation to make-up the low R-value of vinyl in most of the U.S. and Canada, if interested in dew points.

OP, have you decided which way to go yet?
