The centerpiece of the Generations® Energy-Efficient Exteriors System
is Generations Thermal Core Siding, a line of thick, premium foam backed vinyl siding
designed to look great, provide value, and protect your home for a lifetime.
Generations Thermal Core Siding has a thick polystyrene foam core that will provide
a lifetime of benefits far beyond normal exterior cladding. The permanently applied
foam backing helps insulate your home,
keeping it cooler in summer
and warmer in winter. With R-values ranging to nearly 2.6
on the product style, it delivers significant energy performance in both hot and
cold climates and may provide 20% energy costs savings
The insulating foam core of Generations Thermal Core Siding increases rigidity for
straighter, smoother lines, and has significantly more impact resistance than hollow
backed vinyl or metal sidings: up to 4 times more resistance
improves the performance of your exterior against hail storms, thrown baseballs
or moving lawn mowers.
It’s also important to note that the vinyl panels have a proprietary LIFE-LOCK™
locking system. In American Society of Testing & Materials Standards performance
tests, the Generations Thermal Core Siding was found to withstand
negative test pressures equivalent to wind loads in excess of 180 mph
(as calculated using ASTM standards).
Generations Thermal Core Siding features ColorHold®
, an innovative
capstock that gives the exterior vinyl panel superior fade resistance. Because it
has a Double Lifetime Limited
with Lifetime Fade Protection
your investment is solidly protected. And, homes with a fresh new exterior, like
the look you’ll get with your new Generations Thermal Core Siding, tend to increase
their curb appeal and value.
Because Generations Thermal Core Siding exterior is solid vinyl, it will never crack,
blister, flake or peel, so you never have to scrape, sand or paint ever again
This means more time to spend with loved ones.
When you add up all the savings benefits, you’ll understand why more and more home
owners around the country are adding Generations Thermal Core Siding to their home's
