There’s a reason vinyl siding is the most popular choice for remodeling and new construction – it delivers the quality appearance of wood without the costly, time-consuming maintenance. Vinyl won’t split, peel or rot. And because its color goes clear through the panel, it never needs to be scraped, stained or painted.
Whether you expect the highest level of quality and performance or you’re looking for value without compromise, Tri-County Exteriors is here to meet your needs.
If you’re looking for a high quality insulated vinyl siding you’ve found it here in Alside. Alside insulated vinyl siding has some of the best insulation ratings in the business. It has an innovative lock design, laminated foam insulation and comes in 16′ lengths to reduce the number of seams on the wall. Overall this is a well thought out product from a leader in the siding business.
Well, first of all here’s how it works. When most vinyl siding is installed, the installer starts at the bottom and nails each panel to the wall clipping one into the panel below it and hanging the siding above as he moves up the wall. With Alside Prodigy each panel sits on top of the panel below it which provides extra strength.
With this design Prodigy uses gravity to it’s advantage. The more force that is applied to the top of the siding the stronger it gets. This complete eliminates the chance for one panel to pop off the wall and hang out looking all silly. Everyone has probably seen that happen at one point or another, it won’t happen with Prodigy siding.
What is a perm rating?
As we go through Alside Prodigy siding reviews we want to focus on the characteristics that make Prodigy siding unique. One of those is the perm rating of 5.0. This means the Prodigy siding resists water retention that can cause mildew or mold. There is a tremendous amount of moisture in your home from breathing, showering, cooking etc. If this moisture can’t get out it will form into condensation at the coldest point which will likely be inside your walls. That can lead to mold and mildew which is something Prodigy will help you avoid.
What are the drawbacks to Prodigy siding?
Prodigy siding only comes in limited profiles. This is fine if you like those looks, but if you (or your homeowners association) have other ideas you’ll be out of luck here.
If you’re comparing this product to other insulated siding options, you’ll find CraneBoard offers similar options and Charter Oak Energy Elite might be a slightly less expensive option from Alside.
