Monte Johnson met with these homeowners to discuss the difference between insulated and un-insulated vinyl siding. There is a big difference between the two products. Insulated siding has the insulation laminated right on the back of the siding and provides 400 % more impact resistance, The installers love to apply insulated vinyl siding because the wall lines stay straight, joints lay flatter, and stay closed when expanding and contracting. When installing un-insulated vinyl siding, the installers depend on a 1/4 inch or 3/8 flat fold underlayment to straighten out the walls. It is a good underlayment but still not rigid enough to keep the wall lines flat, and joints closed. With it being hollow it offers very little impact resistance and can be damaged very easily by hail.

In 1994, Midwest Construction became the First Company in the State of Iowa to sell and install Progressive Foam Products. We used a drop in foam that was manufactured by Progressive Foam and were fortunate enough, as one of their oldest customers, to have the first opportunity to sell and install the new system of insulated siding with the insulation actually laminated to the panel, American Classic Insulated siding.

Thank you, Progressive Foam and American Classic, for delivering one of the Best Insulated Siding Panels in the industry with the strongest warranties from the manufacturer and additional warranty from Progressive Foam Industries.
