Does Fiber Cement Siding Insulate Better Than Vinyl?

Does Fiber Cement Siding Insulate Better Than VinylIf you’re planning to replace the siding on your home, there are probably numerous questions running through your mind. What type of siding is strongest? Which kind will look best on your house? And will the type you choose fit within your budget? Although durability, beauty, and affordability are all important aspects to consider, one of your main concerns should likely be energy efficiency. In addition to protecting your home from the elements, your siding is responsible for helping to minimize heat transfer. As such, selecting energy-efficient siding can significantly reduce household energy usage, ease the strain on your HVAC system, and improve comfort levels.

With fiber cement siding and vinyl siding being two of the most popular siding materials on the market today, it makes sense that you’d want to know which one insulates better. Energy efficiency can vary from one brand and model to another, so it’s important to note the energy rating for the siding you’re specifically considering having installed. However, with that being said, vinyl siding generally tends to be more energy efficient than fiber cement siding so long as you opt for an insulated model.

A Smarter Alternative for Homeowners in Kansas & Missouri

If you own a home in Kansas or Missouri, you’ll be glad to know that there’s another siding option available to you that’s more energy efficient than both fiber cement siding and vinyl siding: seamless polymer siding from Continental Siding. Fiber cement siding is typically composed of short pieces sealed together with caulk, and vinyl siding often has seams where two pieces of siding overlap. Both can allow for heat transfer through these vulnerable entry points.

Our seamless polymer siding, on the other hand, runs from one end of your house to the other without any gaps, and we even use form-fitting insulation for maximum energy efficiency. What’s more, because we offer financing for all customers—including those who have been turned down elsewhere—you won’t need to worry about whether you’ll be able to afford our industry-leading polymer siding.
