Vinyl Siding Installation: Using GreenGuard Backerboards

Thinking of having your home renewed with vinyl siding? Vinyl siding is the most popular exterior-cladding choice on the market for new homes in the United States. Very few critics can complain about the durability and variety of today’s vinyl products and homeowners couldn’t agree more. Unlike other cladding materials, vinyl siding doesn’t warp, crack, or deteriorate over time. Vinyl siding has a low cost installation, and low maintenance benefits, that have won customers over left and right; Even professional remodelers are recommending vinyl siding to their clientele. One of the leading reasons why vinyl siding has become a major player in today’s home exterior market is due to its green qualities, and backerboards help you achieve it.

What is a Backerboard?

Backerboards are used in a variety of home improvement projects from wood flooring and tiling to home exteriors. Backerboards are used to improve a home’s energy efficiency, and to reduce damage from moisture. Backerboards are placed over the original siding to create a flat surface to attach the new vinyl siding to. They are also used in the installation of vinyl siding as added or extra insulation for your home. Backerboards come in different materials including cement or foam.
