Introducing Vipeq Thermal Corkshield™ Siding Material for Your Home

introducing Vipeq Thermal Corkshield™! Here's some reasons why you should consider using it to give your home's exterior a makeover.

Whether or not they have it, most homeowners can tell you at least a couple benefits of installing siding on their home. One of the biggest benefits of vinyl and aluminum exterior siding is the long-lasting curb appeal it adds, which can pay off handsomely when it’s time to sell the house.

Being maintenance-free, durable and giving the home more insulation, which increases home comfort and decreases energy bills, are also among the better-known benefits of siding.

One of the reasons that most people can list at least a couple benefits of siding is that siding materials, including vinyl and aluminum, have remained virtually unchanged for decades.

That is, until now.

Vipeq Thermal Corkshield™ Sprayed Insulated Cork

Chouinard Bros. is pleased to announce that they now offer their customers an option to traditional siding products. Vipeq Thermal Corkshield™ Sprayed Insulated Cork offers all the benefits of vinyl and aluminum siding, and many more.


Unlike vinyl and aluminum, Thermal Corkshield™ is not a rigid siding material. Instead, it is sprayed on over your existing siding or brickwork.

Cork is a natural product that features remarkable properties as a siding and insulating material, while not harming the environment. Those properties mean homeowners can enjoy the following additional benefits when they choose Thermal Corkshield™ for their siding application. 


  • Sound Insulation – In addition to superior heat and cold insulation, Thermal Corkshield™ muffles sound transmission to keep out exterior noise and make your home or business noticeably quieter.
  • Protection for Your Home – Thermal Corkshield™ is aero-elastic which gives it the flexibility and resilience to absorb impacts without damaging the surface beneath it.
  • Fire Retardant – Cork is a natural, eco-friendly fire retardant that doesn’t release sparks or transmit flames.
  • Durability – Thermal Corkshield™ is unaffected by extremes of heat and cold. It is not faded by sunlight. It is waterproof, mold and mildew resistant and discourages insect infestations.
  • 10-Year Warranty – When applied by professionals, a Thermal Corkshield™ installation is protected by a 10-year warranty.


And Mike Holmes Loves It! – As if all those benefits aren’t enough, in addition to designating  Thermal Corkshield™ as a “Holmes Approved Product”, Mike Holmes is quoted as saying that it’s the “product of the century”.
