CEDAR RIDGE Solid Core Acrylic Siding
Solid Core Acrylic Siding
There are a wide variety of siding options available for your home’s re-siding project. The best choice that strikes an excellent balance between cost and performance is CEDAR RIDGE Solid Core acrylic siding. This term describes siding made up of dissimilar materials bonded together to increase performance.
Types of Composite Siding
There are three types of composite siding: engineered wood, acrylic, and fiber cement siding.
Each of these siding types has its own defining characteristics.
Engineered Wood. Engineered wood siding is made from wood products that are mixed with fillers and binders, heated, and then pressed into boards. A decorative layer is bonded to the boards to replicate the look of natural wood. The boards are then treated to resist mildew, rot, and insects. The result is less expensive than natural wood siding, is more durable and requires less upkeep.
Acrylic. Acrylic composite solid-core siding is a product that incorporates a polymer mixture, rigid core backing, insulation and a thermal barrier coating into the composite. This siding is known for its strength, impact resistance and noise reduction and insulating properties.
Fiber Cement. Fiber cement siding is made from a mixture of sand, cement, water, and cellulose that is steam heated and formed into planks. The result is a durable product that is resistant to damage, rot, and insects. Fiber cement siding requires less maintenance than wood siding and is typically guaranteed to last 50 years, although it will need to be repainted after 10 to 15 years. Fiber cement siding is also flame retardant.

The siding is a hand-milled cedar-grain, seamless finish. It is maintenance free, meaning there is no need for scraping or painting. It is engineered to improve thermal performance and keep moisture out.

It is 300% more impact resistant, virtually maintenance-free siding never needs painting, withstands winds up to 200mph, locks out noise – up to 45% more than vinyl siding, and offers better air infiltration protection than vinyl siding with backer board.
With an insulated, rigid core backing, Cedar Ridge composite siding is one of the most energy-efficient siding materials offered today. Composite siding has an R-value of 4.0.

Cedar Ridge, like most composite siding, can be applied over your old siding, thus increasing your R-value and helping you save money on new installation. Cedar Ridge is the only insulated siding that uses Neopor®, a graphite enhanced EPS foam that increases the R-value* — or measure of thermal resistance by up to 19% versus traditional insulation.
In addition to being able to withstand 200 mph winds and being 300% stronger than regular siding, Cedar Ridge also comes with exclusive graphite insulation.
