Proper Installation Techniques for Insulated Siding
Proper installation of insulated siding is key to its energy efficiency performance.
Because many of the installation techniques for insulated siding are similar to those for vinyl siding, users should first refer to the VSI Vinyl Siding Installation Manual. For more specifics on installation techniques for insulated siding refer to Chapter 5 in the Insulated Siding as Home Insulation: Guide for Users and Energy Raters. The Guide provides general installation instruction, as well as more specific techniques for panels, around doors and windows, and for the final course.
Note: The installation of specific products may differ in detail from the instructions provided in the Guide. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions, using accessories specified by the manufacturer, to ensure proper installation.
