Developing a tough, durable and beautiful vinyl siding for Moline and bettendorf such as Charter Oak requires the technical skills of a chemical process engineer and the visual sensibilities of an architect. That's because the premium vinyl used in Charter Oak is more than just a simple PVC resin. It's a proprietary compound, with each ingredient chosen to add specific benefits to the final product.
A patented defense against termites and carpenter ants based on a naturally-occurring mineral
Insulation is designed to keep people comfortable. Unfortunately, the same protective environment that keeps homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer can be an attractive habitat for certain pests.
In order to prevent this problem, we manufacture the Fullback Thermal Support System with Perform Guard, using a patented process that incorporates an EPA - registered additive into the insulation during manufacturing. Perform guard uses a naturally-occurring inorganic mineral (boron) that deters carpenter ants and termites. It is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency for this application and is safe for humans and pets.
Fullback also fills the hollow void behind siding where pests might otherwise travel. Thanks to Fullback thermal Support and Perform Guard, carpenter ants and termites will not choose a home behind your siding in Moline or Bettendorf.
Fullback Thermal Support System is a contoured foam system precisely configured to fit the profile of any siding panel. It completely eliminates the problems associated with the void behind conventional hollow siding. It eliminates the cozy space between the siding and the home where insects may congregate. Made with Perform Guard, the contoured foam in Fullback is resistant to termites and carpenter ants.
Termite exposure tests have been conducted by industry-recognized institutions following test standards. Product performance testing in the laboratory and in the field for over a decade has demonstrated that foam construction materials with Perform Guard resists termite infestation when installed following manufacturer's recommendations. Perform Guard has also demonstrated resistance to carpenter ants and contains a flame retardant.
Perform Guard is manufactured to quality control program standards monitored by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. and is recognized by national building codes. The manufacturer warrants the product for termite resistance, structural integrity and thermal performance.
