If you are looking for a unique exterior for your home, consider metal siding. Metal is long-lasting and resists wind better than most types of siding for your home. TEMA Roofing has extensive experience installing metal on exteriors and can help guide you through the entire process. Metal is perfect for historic homes, houses with a contemporary look and as accents around bay or bow windows.
Benefits of Metal Siding
One of the benefits of metal cladding is that it requires little maintenance. If you live in an area with harsh winters, metal will withstand even the worst snow, ice, frost and sleet. Metal is also an excellent option in warmer climates. Metal does not absorb moisture so it resists the growth of mold or fungus, a danger to your home’s framing as well as a health hazard for your family. In addition, metal does not attract insects such as termites. Over the past few years, metal options have improved significantly, providing you with textures or styles that look like wood but without the disadvantages of wood siding.
Metal Siding Styles and Types
You can find metal siding in copper, zinc, aluminum or other type of metal. The benefit of metal is that it can be formed into almost any shape, whether you want circular edges, curves or straight siding. You can even find vertical metal siding for a truly unique look to the exterior of your home. Because metal is easily fabricated, you can find metal siding that has the appearance of real wood, cedar shake and many other natural materials but with less maintenance.
The Difference Between Aluminum and Steel Siding
Aluminum is one of the most inexpensive and durable sidings you can purchase for your home. It is easier to install than steel siding as it is lighter. Aluminum siding is also available in a wide range of colors and textures. Steel is better suited for homes located where there is extreme weather. Just like aluminum, steel can be shaped to look like natural types of siding. Steel is stronger than aluminum, so there is less concern about denting or scratching. Aluminum works better for detailed trim work, but steel is also more fire retardant.
