“R Factor” is often talked about when you’re talking about siding and insulation. Unless you’re in the building industry you may not know what that means and why it’s important. The “R Factor” is the resistance of the product to the sun. The higher the R factor the better because it means less fading, warping and cracking. When a home is built the walls usually have an R factor of 9 – from the outside of the house all the way to the inside wall.
When you put new siding on your house you’re adding R factor to the wall of your home. All of our siding adds an R factor of 5 to you home – which decreases your energy costs and adds value to your home! See our blog about the pros and cons of Vinyl and Fiber Cement siding – coming soon!
