How to Properly Maintain Steel Siding
High-quality steel siding that’s expertly installed requires little maintenance to retain its beauty and ability to protect your home from wind, rain, bugs, and extreme temperatures. In fact, the minimal maintenance required to keep steel siding looking its best is among the top reasons why homeowners replace their high-maintenance wood or vinyl siding with steel. Choose the right steel siding for your home and you can say goodbye to:
- Pressure washing your home every few months – Unlike its wood and vinyl counterparts, steel siding doesn’t support mold and mildew growth, so there’s no need to blast these unsightly fungi off your siding using a power washer.
- Caulking to re-seal gaps every few years – Seamless steel siding that’s expertly installed with screws instead of nails will remain in place and provide an impenetrable barrier to insect, moisture, and air infiltration with no need for periodic touch-ups.
- Sanding and repainting your house siding – Even fiber cement siding, billed as one of the most weather-resistant cladding materials on the market, will require repainting after 10 to 15 years. The right brand of steel siding will last for decades, often up to 50 years or more, with no need for repainting.
In fact, when it comes to minimal maintenance requirements, properly installed steel siding can outperform even brick cladding, which requires mortar replacement from time to time.
Why ABC Seamless Steel Siding Is the Best Choice
The experts at ABC Seamless pioneered the installation of residential seamless steel siding more than 40 years ago, which means they’ve had decades to perfect both the product and installation practices. The results?
ABC Seamless siding is manufactured from premium-grade steel that’s galvanized to prevent rust and coated with a protective finish to prevent premature fading. It’s one of the most fire-resistant and impact-resistant siding options in the industry, which means it’s far less likely than other types of siding to need repair or replacement as the years go by.
Best-in-Class Installation Techniques
ABC Seamless steel siding panels are custom cut to stretch from one corner of a home to the next so that there’s no need to piece together segments to fit. This eliminates the splices that you often see with other types of siding—splices that can expose your home to air, water, and insect infiltration unless you diligently inspect them for signs of loosening and provide repairs as needed. Moreover, when you have ABC Seamless steel siding installed on your home, it will be securely affixed with screws instead of nails. This makes it exceptionally resistant to being dislodged by wind or flying debris.
So, given that ABC Seamless steel siding remains beautiful year after year even when under attack by Mother Nature, how do you properly maintain it?
You rinse it off every now and then with a garden hose. It’s that simple.
