Metal is one of the most durable siding products on the market. However, not all homeowners are aware of its availability because wood, vinyl and fiber cement remain the most popular choices. Also, some only see it as a perfect fit for commercial buildings and not for residential properties.
Here are the numerous benefits of metal siding that will convince you to consider it as a replacement for your current siding.
Metal siding requires comparatively little maintenance because any accumulated dirt and debris are washed away by rain or water by your garden hose or pressure washer. Since it can fare well against natural threats like snow, heat and frost, expect it to be highly resistant to warping, fading, cracking and chipping.
Metal siding wouldn’t add too much weight to the property’s load since it’s lightweight. While it’s fast and easy to install, it still requires skill and experience. You need to work with a contractor that can expertly install metal siding and ensure the health and performance of the material.
Metal doesn’t absorb or retain moisture like wood or brick siding does, which means it won’t swell or decompose. This quality makes it an ideal replacement for homeowners who have to deal with mold, mildew or fungus in their current siding.
