Is it time to get replacement siding for your home? New siding can improve the look of your home and enjoyment of it and protect it from the extremes of weather, and even add to your home’s resale value.
Are you considering ‘insulated siding’ (which is also known as ‘parement isol’ in the French language) for your remodel? It’s no wonder with its numerous advantages! Insulated vinyl siding has been a hit since it was introduced to the market.
It is vinyl siding that has been laminated with foam-core backing.

What are its benefits?
You get an air and moisture infiltration barrier plus a thermal break that stops heat transmission — an excellent choice to improve the energy efficiency of your home.
Insulated siding also reduces noise pollution and provides a cleaner and more attractive look, given the fact that it is easier to install.
But the calculation of whether it’s time to tackle a siding project should include the right budget calculations, determining how much you need to spend.
Generally speaking, materials account for 50 to 75% of a siding project and labor covers the rest. A good, reliable siding contractor usually charges by the project, not by the hour. Usually, more expensive siding materials come with higher labor costs.
To ensure your budget is understood and followed by the contractor, it’s a good idea to include it and any costs in your contract. This will help the two of you stay on the same page as far as the project costs.
