More about us:
Vertical metal siding is one of the siding materials one can use for a house’s side walls.
The most commonly used metals in this case are aluminum and steel. Both have a number of advantages which one should consider when deciding to install such siding. Let us discuss these benefits in some more detail.
Benefits of Metal:
Durability and Strength: Metal siding has the advantage of being strong and resistant. Steel is obviously stronger than aluminum and is not likely to have dents caused in it. Furthermore, steel tends to retain its color better too. However, having said that, one can always choose to paint aluminum in order to enhance its look.
Fire Resistant: Unlike wood siding, metal siding has the advantage of being safer as it is fire resistant.
Insect Resistant: Metal siding also has the advantage of being pest resistant as unlike wood it does not attract insects.
Easy to Clean and Maintain: Metal siding is easy to clean. Furthermore it does not require much maintenance. The most important thing is that it is galvanized and properly coated, so as to be better resistant against rust from developing.
Energy Saving: Metal siding is resistant against weather conditions, and as a result it helps to reduce the need to use heating or cooling devices within the home. The overall temperature inside the house can be regulated indirectly thanks to the house’s outside layer that the siding provides.
Seamless Steel Siding for Your Home – Combining beauty and low maintenance
Seamless steel is relatively new to the world of siding compared with wood, fiber cement aluminum and vinyl. Unlike wood, aluminum and fiber cement, steel siding never needs to be sanded or repainted. Its beautiful appearance can be retained for many years after installation with no more maintenance than a periodic rinse with a garden hose. Corrosion (rust caused by prolonged exposure to moisture) and oxidation (white chalky film that can be removed by power-washing) are the main problems you might have with upkeep, but if you take care of them right away, you probably won’t have to replace anything. Most manufacturers of steel siding provide excellent warranties and expect their siding to last 20+ years. In fact, it’s longevity may be the single biggest benefit steel siding offers.
Seamless steel siding is custom-fit to your home, eliminating unsightly seams or splits in the surface of your siding. Besides the obvious aesthetic benefits, no seam means less opportunity for exposure to the elements. Other kinds of siding may come only in precut sections. Some, like fiber cement, are very difficult to manage at lengths of more than 12 feet. With steel siding, however, installation companies have a machine that can actually manufacture every piece on-site and at a perfect fit, with the precise color and style you choose. Starting with a roll of steel, each siding piece is cut to the exact measurements of your home.
High on durability, steel is the strongest siding material available, able to resist extreme temperatures, salt spray, wind, hail, and fire, so it is an especially good option for those who live with a lot of snow during the year or in salty, sandy climates. A new PVC (polyvinyl chloride) coating protects against damaging UV rays that can cause fading, prevents scratches, and keeps dirt and debris from adhering to the surface. Unlike aluminum siding, steel is less likely to dent during a hail storm or when the neighbor’s kid plays ball with the side of your house.
With seamless steel siding, you can still have the look of wood without attracting ants and termites, and it seals well to prevent dirt and moisture from penetrating to the surface underneath. The purpose of siding is to protect your home from insects, moisture, and biological elements like dust and mold. When these things get beneath your siding, the result can be serious damage to your home, or allergies associated with mold, dust, and pollen. Steel siding, as with other types of metal, increases the efficiency of heating and cooling, meaning cost benefits for you for years to come. Steel isn’t prone to warping, sagging, or splitting like other materials.
