Beefy insulated panel a solid contender for efficient siding with a R 2.3-2.8 insulation attached to panels either in Traditional Double 6" or Single 7" profiles. This panel has a unique three piece system that is fused to the standard vinyl there is a weather-able cap stock that is supposedly tougher and helps lower fade due to UV exposure. A good but not great color selection.


  • Insulated efficient panel
  • Three piece system - super tough


  • Expensive
  • Colors selection is a bit limited for a top of the line siding
