Siding that Keeps you Warm Without Sacrificing Beauty
Like many elements of a home, the siding serves a practical purpose while also carrying a utility as an aesthetically appealing part of the home. The right siding can perfectly complement a home and raise the bar on its overall beauty. At the same time, siding is a useful way to keep warmth within the home itself. An excellent example is the top notch siding offered by ProVia. Their CedarMAX insulated siding assists in the warming of a home. Specifically, it breaks the “thermal bridge” between the home’s studs and exterior cladding. In essence, thermal bridging is when heat flows through two different materials with poor insulating properties – the contact between the materials is the thermal bridge.
When building a home or adding to an already established home, one of the first aspects to consider is the insulation, and in turn the R-value of the structure. Fortunately, builders that use CedarMAX don’t have to worry about heat loss, as the insulated siding boasts an R-value of 2.5 – which substantially exceeds wood, brick, cement, and stucco R-values. This is a welcome addition to homes in the Midwest, where winter temperatures can dip to sub-zero temperatures at night. Plus, the CedarMax has 5x more impact resistance than ordinary siding, and features a 227 mph windload rating.

The siding developed by ProVia is the ultimate in anti-weathering. It uses a SPX-2000 UV blocker to protect the siding from elements. Additionally, you can give the homeowner/buyer peace of mind when they choose a color to complement the rest of their home. That is because Heartland stands behind their product with a color-keeper™ anti-fade protection guarantee.
