In 1998, Columbus, Ohio–based Exterior Portfolio by Crane attached rigid foam insulation to vinyl siding and launched a whole new product category: insulated siding. The industry said the new product would improve the looks and performance of the most popular siding in the country. “Aesthetics is probably the No. 1 benefit,” says Jim Ziminski, vice president and general manager at Crane. “We can produce boards with a wider exposure. Plus, it allows installers to create straighter walls because, unlike regular vinyl siding, insulated products do not follow the contours of an uneven wall.”
A better-looking product is only the beginning, the industry says.
