For the past ten years, Home Kits has exclusively supplied steel siding as a superior alternative to vinyl coverings. Now, we
have found a vinyl product that we can wholeheartedly recommend. Polar Wall Plus insulated siding represents a breakthrough
in wall cladding. Perhaps best of all, Polar Wall Plus simply looks fantastic.
The key to Polar Wall's success is the 1¼" thick polystyrene insulating board that is laminated to the vinyl panels. Because
this backing conforms completely to the profile of the panels, it prevents wind from getting between the siding and the wall. Not
only does this design eliminate the rattling that is associated with vinyl siding, but it gives Polar Wall the rigidity that regular vinyl
lacks. Polar Wall boasts almost triple the impact resistance of regular vinyl siding, and it has a wind rating of 210 mph .
The polystyrene is treated with an organic, bio-degradeable chemical that acts as both a flame retardant and a termite shield
(not that you'll have to worry about termites in your Steel-Kits steel home). Finally, this insulating backing will add as much
3.53 to the R-value of your wall.
Home Kits' siding packages come complete with fasteners, starter strips, and all necessary trim. Unlike our steel siding,
Polar Wall Plus insulated vinyl siding must be attached to an exterior wall sheathing like plywood, OSB board to meet code.
As you know by now, Home Kits's steel framing is engineered to provide sufficient shear strength to the walls without sheathing;
however, the IBC/IRC code requires that any vinyl wall covering be installed over a sheathing board.
