does vinyl siding or insulation under the siding qualify for the tax credit? if so is it only the cost of the insulation and not any of the other siding materials?
thank you

Loose Fit NON GLUEBACK insert foam is the only product that qualifies. It is made by prodigy. It is just like structure or cedar boards, except you push up the panel and then slip the contoured foam in. They make a profiled foam to fit just about every major manufacturers panel.

In most cases it voids the manufacturer warranty.

However it does qualify 30% of what ever material cost you give the homeowner.

siding is considered an exterior clad and NOT included in the new stimulous bill. however,the insulation is covered(material only). so basically 800 bucks of material is covered which means 13% of 800 bucks.
ironically solid core siding(foam backed) is not covered; go figure.

It does not have to be YOUR material cost, its what you charge the homeowner for the material

thats where i get mine.(bradco).
i like prodigy but its too bulky . Crane has all the various accessories that fit the deeper J;whereas prodigy only has a few. i love Alside's 25' panel with the reinforcement but i just don't feel the panel looks realistic.
