Aluminum house siding is a premium alternative to vinyl siding. It’s very durable and low maintenance, easily cleaned with your garden hose. Aluminum siding is sometimes called metal siding.
Benefits of Aluminum Siding
As with other types of siding, metal siding comes in a variety of colours and finishes, including a wood grain finish to give you the appearance of wood without the drawbacks. Both horizontal and vertical aluminum siding are available in a range of sizes, giving you even more flexibility when it comes to your home’s appearance. It’s also possible to paint aluminum siding should you want to change the colour in the future.
Less combustible than wood siding and very durable, aluminum siding typically comes with a lifetime warranty. You’ll get a 15- to 25-year warranty on the finish.
When it comes to installation, you need to take extra care. These are high-end products, and you don’t want to dent or crease the material as this will negatively impact the appearance of your home.
Installation must be done properly to prevent the siding from trapping water that could damage the building envelope. Considering the aluminum siding cost, it’s worth it to hire a company that uses experienced installers and understands how to protect your building envelope.
