A Money Saving Upgrade to Protect Your Home

A Money Saving Upgrade to Protect Your Home

Do you have an older home, particularly one that was framed with two by four walls? Well, we just ran across a home that was built in the late 1950’s, has NO insulation in the walls, and needs new siding. There is a bunch of areas where both dry rot and insect damage have been found, so some repairs need to be made. The home owner wishes to improve the thermal performance of their home, and we recommended that they consider the HardiePlank® lap siding with built-in foam insulation. With an R-Value of 3, it would keep their home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. With new insulation in the wall cavity and the HardiePlank® lap siding with built-in foam insulation, the home owner is completely satisfied with the end result.
• Helps reduce utility costs by providing R3 exterior insulation • Diminishes outside noise • Enhances strength and impact resistance • Helps to reduce appearance of minor framing imperfections • Backed by a single-source warranty from a trusted manufacturer
