There are reasons to choose Mastic Insulated Vinyl Siding. Besides being a leader in insulated siding, Mastic is at the helm with this type of siding because of its structure and superior insulating abilities. There are many features for using this siding on your home. Here are five reasons that will inspire you to think about incorporating it into your home design.
Mastic Vinyl Siding has major resistance to what’s happening outside your home with the elements, and that’s because of its structure. It takes the latest in technology and couples it with insulating foam that’s able to maintain consistent warmth during the cold months and surprising coolness during the summer months.
With everyday insulation, you’re likely to get drafts, as there is always room for air to come in, even with sheets of insulation being installed in walls and your attic. Air is going to come through any small spaces because of a fit that’s not completely closed. You’ll always have drafts and some energy loss. With Mastic siding, air loss is minimal, if any. Being able to withstand any weather condition better than more traditional vinyl is one of its better features, plus its thick construction and a baked finish make it a durable material.
Mastic foam-backed siding is a sustainable material that consists of recycled materials. Salt, natural gas, stabilizers, and antioxidants provide excellent performance with limited waste in manufacturing procedures. It surrounds your home with a breathable wraparound of insulation that is an inch and a quarter in thickness, which lowers your utility bills while adding resistance from the outside. Your home is quieter and you can reduce outside noise to almost nothing. These qualities entitle the material to be part of green building credits and certifications through Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEEDS) and The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).
If you want your home to be sound and fully insulated for energy efficiency, Mastic’s insulated siding can help do that. The Mastic system provides insulation coverage in areas of your house where heat buildup can escape as well as cover non-insulated spaces, such as studs. It also provides protection in areas where drafts and loss of energy and heat transfer occur, like around windows and doors. With a special foam backing and the right R-value (3.0), the product meets Energy Star directives for energy savings in your home.
Minimal Maintenance and Warranties
One thing Mastic vinyl siding does is limit your upkeep on it. Vinyl is a material that lasts because of its resistance to damage from moisture and any rot that would happen with most other wooden materials. It also frees you up because no repainting is necessary. You would likely have to do that with wood or fiber cement materials. You’ll love that you don’t have to deal with losing time and money in painting.
If there are issues with maintenance, there are limited lifetime warranties available for hail damage and any fading. Mastic siding also meets standards for:
- Color capacity
- Impact strength
- Wind load stamina
Mastic insulated vinyl siding is available in beautifully fashioned wide panels that have the appearance and feel of wood siding. Its texture is comparable to a grain that is like classy cedar. Your home will definitely gain added curb appeal with this attractive look.
There are other selections to choose from in longer planks, lap siding widths, colors, and textures. You can create just the look you want. The colors range from twenty-plus selections in such classics as cream reds, to gold colors and many others that give a custom look. Design flexibility is the name of the game that makes any style of architecture come alive.
