Is your home ready for hurricane season?

HeartTech Siding ImageOur hearts are breaking watching the devastation of what has already become a horrific hurricane season. With many displaced and struggling from hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the Florida Panhandle knows too well the damage that hurricane season can bring.

What if in the hustle of hurricane preparations you didn’t have to worry as much about your home exterior siding?

We can’t fix the flooding and we can’t predict the direction or speed of the storm, but we can provide you with access to two siding products that have been wind-load tested and were created to perform at the highest levels in an effort to give you an advantage over conventional hollow siding.

Conventional hollow siding utilizes a flat nailing hem that can make siding vulnerable to high winds. Hallmark Distributors has two Provia siding products available 1) HeartTech and 2)CedarMAX that utilize optimum structural design to help support your home exterior by providing increased structural stability and high wind performance.

1) About HeartTech

With its Super Polymer Formulation and durable structural design, HeartTech is engineered to perform by providing optimum color retention and structural stability in all climates.

Double-Ply Nailing Hem
• Double the tear resistance
• More rigid connection to the exterior wall
• Increased structural stability
• Increased high wind performance

Installer-Friendly Lock
• Secured installation of panel
• Increased high wind performance – Windload tested* to 230 mph

Super Polymer Formulation
• Anti-weathering ingredients
• UV protective materials
• Inorganic pigments
• Impact modifiers
• PVC resins

Tri-Pigment Reflective Technology
• Camouflage pattern of dark and light pigments spread
heat throughout the panel
• Lighter pigments reflect heat
• Darker pigments provide color
• Panel stays cooler than single pigment technology
• Ensures color saturation through-out the panel
• Scratches and abrasions virtually disappear

Panel Leg
• Secures and completes the installer friendly lock
• Prevents the panel from dropping out of the lock
during installation

2) ABOUT CedarMAX

Integration of ProVia’s exclusive Super Polymer formulation with rigid EPS foam insulation makes CedarMAX the perfect choice of exterior insulated cladding for your home.

* Wind load testing is based upon ASTM 5206 testing and the results are reported per ASTM 3679 section 5.11. Florida Building Code FL#1712.5

*** R-values are based on Federal Trade Commission requirements under the ASTM C1363 standard, which provides stringent, repeatable and reproducible results. While R-values for some profiles produced through ASTM C1363 testing may result in lower R-values than simulation modeling, the home insulating performance of insulated siding has not changed. ASTM C1363 testing provides added assurance of its energy efficiency performance and R-value results.
