Vinyl Siding Vinyl siding has been around for over 60 years and has been one of the most popular types of home siding because of its low-cost, variety of colors, and low maintenance. Low maintenance means time saver! This siding option has only gotten better over the years and has improved greatly on quality, durability and look. Vinyl siding not only lets you customize your home to the exact color and style you want, but provides that low maintenance option to save you time when caring for your home.

Insulated Vinyl Siding This type of vinyl siding has all of the benefits of the other with significantly improved energy savings. You may be asking yourself why insulated vinyl siding is not used more often. With insulated siding there is a greater upfront cost than standard vinyl siding, but it will save you more money in the long run. Insulated vinyl siding adds to the overall R-value of your walls and increases thermal resistance. Your home will be better insulated (helping you save energy and money) and protected for hazards such as hail, stray baseballs, etc... A good example of insulated vinyl siding is Heartland Siding's CedarMAX. CedarMAX is an insulated vinyl siding that provides a complete thermal cladding system. If you want to reduce the energy loss of your home CedarMAX makes the perfect siding replacement choice for your home. Here at Iowa Home Exteriors we recommend using the insulated vinyl siding in order to help you save money in the future. Vinyl Siding Maintenance Now for some time saving advice! Vinyl siding has very little maintenance unlike other siding options such as wood, stucco, or metal siding where you need to put more effort and time into keeping it looking nice. Vinyl siding was created with little to no maintenance in mind. If your siding begins to look like it needs cleaning, you can use a power washer on a low heat/power setting. Save Money!
