This is part of the large Plygem organization for reference. The Climaforce series is their top of the the vinyl siding product feauturing all of the bells and whistles you would expect with a siding of this caliber. To start this is an insulated panel available in 4 great profile designs including; Single 7" Clapboard, Double 6" Clapboard, Double 5" Dutchlap, and Double 4" Clapboard for traditionalist. EPS foam backing and a rolled or curled nailing hem locking point back this siding tough and secure for the most demanding applications. The only drawback we see comes in the color selection. While it is not bad it is also not great. We would really like to see some darker colors available as even the premium colors seem a bit washed out.


  • Thick Sturdy Siding
  • EOS Foam Insulated
  • Good locking and strong nailing hem


  • Cost a bit much
  • Colors are not deep enough
