Insulated Cladding Benefits
Cooler in Summer – Warmer in Winter
Vinyl weatherboards can boost the energy efficiency of a home and has the environmental benefits of its use and manufacture. With a a choice of 15mm, 20mm or 30mm polystyrene foam backing on the vinyl cladding, the home benefits from increased insulation and the range of temperature variation inside the building is greatly reduced – making it cooler in the summer and warmer in winter. The will lead to significant energy cost savings and environmental benefits – including a reduction in carbon footprint and lower power consumption to control temperature inside the home. The result is a more comfortable home and lower power bills.
The great advantage of foam-backed insulated vinyl cladding in Victoria is being able to add a layer of insulation to the entire home without any demolition or reconstruction – resulting in higher insulation levels and energy savings year after year. This is good news for the homeowner and the planet!
The green building movement is well underway and many builders, developers and home-owners are evaluating a variety of green building standards to determine how to build a green home. Vinyl Cladding is engineered for sustainability to meet today’s environmental challenges and the highest Australian standards.
Produces Little Waste When Manufactured And Installed: The ability to immediately return scrap and regrind directly into the manufacturing process results in virtually no manufacturing waste. Installing vinyl cladding generates very little waste when compared to other exterior cladding.
Contributes Less To Global Warming Than Brick: The manufacture of vinyl cladding consumes less than half of the energy and fuel consumed in the process of manufacturing brick and mortar.
