If you have ever been involved in a renovation project, chances are you had to consider the “R-Value” of certain building materials. But what does that number mean and why is it so important, especially on insulation products?

Simply put, the R-Value is a way to measure how insulating a material is, which affects its efficiency against temperature variations. A higher value means better insulation. This is especially important on vital elements such as house siding and roofing.

Vinyl and aluminium siding have different R-Values, depending on the material’s thickness. Usually a higher R-Value comes at a higher initial cost, but might save you money on the long-term since your house will become more insulated and energy efficient.
