Rhode Island Siding Specialists
The exterior of your home says a lot about who lives there. It’s the face of your home! Nothing expresses your individual unique taste and character the way your choice of siding does; therefore, you’re going to want a premium product for that job. Updating your home’s siding is a big decision — one that can have a significant effect on your lifestyle and the value of your property. High quality composite siding installed by RIHI will do just that, but a poor-quality product installed by inexperienced or careless installers may do just the opposite. The siding on your home is serious business, and you want a company who will treat it as such.
Whether you’re considering our top-of-the-line composites or classical vinyl siding, we have the solution.

Composite Siding Moisture Management
Saving energy and enhancing the appearance of your siding is only half the story. Your home can breathe easier with RIHI’s PROTEC Cedar Ridge Composite Siding!
Do you know that the average family of four can produce up to 4-6 gallons of water vapor inside a home every day? This water vapor is generated from activities such as cooking, showering and cleaning. When adding insulation to the outside of your home, you are making it tighter to increase its energy efficiency. You have to be sure not to stop moisture from being able to escape.
The problem is that many other insulation products can prevent this moisture from escaping, actually trapping the moisture in the walls. This is one of the causes of mold and mildew inside the home where you can see it. Moisture damage in the wall can create an expensive repair nightmare long before you even know it’s there.
RIHI’s Protec Cedar Ridge Collection Promotes Composite Siding Moisture Management
Cedar Ridge is a highly permeable two-way street for moisture management. It is designed to not only save energy, but also let water vapor pass through very efficiently. With a superior permeability rating of 5.0, Cedar Ridge allows moisture from inside your home to move freely to the outside, while still providing important insulation factors. It helps protect against mold and mildew and promoting a healthier environment for your family!
