How Long Does Metal Siding Last?
Metal siding is one of the most durable, energy-efficient, and low-maintenance types of house cladding you can buy, thus making it a great alternative to siding crafted from wood or vinyl. There are two types of metal siding that are available to homeowners: steel and aluminum, both of which are fire resistant and can last for decades. However, steel siding is hands-down the better choice for homeowners in the Cheyenne, Wyoming, area, and here are some of the reasons why:
Many of our customers at ABC Seamless of Cheyenne choose our seamless steel siding because their existing home siding was damaged in a hailstorm. Most homeowners don’t want to invest in beautiful new siding, only to turn around and see it dented and scratched during the next icy blitz. Steel siding is tougher and more resistant to impact damage than aluminum siding, and it also outperforms its counterparts made from wood or vinyl.
On the other end of the spectrum, during the warm summer months, mold and mildew can build up on aluminum siding. This means that, just as with wood or vinyl siding, you’ll have to scrub or power wash your aluminum siding periodically to keep it looking nice. Steel siding won’t support mildew growth, so this is a chore you can cross off your honey-do list for good.
Although aluminum siding doesn’t need painting as often as wood, the finish typically wears away over time and you’ll need to repaint. Contrast that to the beautiful baked-on, fade-resistant coating applied to ABC Seamless steel siding, which means you won’t have to worry about repainting ever again.
In fact, ABC Seamless steel siding is meticulously crafted to last a lifetime in the Cheyenne, WY, area, where homes need a veritable suit of armor to protect them against the forces of nature.
