house_with_Emco_sidingOther than your roof, the siding you choose for your home or business will be one of the largest investments you make. There are many options to choose from including vinyl, stucco, wood, stone, and more. Each material has its own advantages, benefits, and ideal installation applications.

Steel siding is a common choice among homeowners and business owners for it’s strength and durability. Steel is thicker and stronger than aluminum making it more durable and dent resistant, and it has a greater lifespan than either vinyl or aluminum – some steel siding products are built to last 50 years or more!

Low Maintenance

Once steel siding has been properly installed, it requires very little maintenance, even in areas with tough winters and hot summers. Unlike vinyl siding that will crack and fade, or aluminum siding that will dent or turn chalky, steel is rigid and is resistant to buckling and warping. It is coated with a durable finish that resists cracking, peeling, flaking, chipping and fading.

Strength and Safety

Steel siding can stand up to the elements, even wind and ice. It won’t absorb moisture and warp or rot, and it does not facilitate the growth of mold and fungus. It is also naturally resistant to fire making it a safe choice.

Steel Siding: Add to Your Curb Appeal

Siding made from steel no longer has to look industrial and harsh as finishes for steel have come a long way in recent years. Steel can now be made to look like wood, shingles, shakes, and other finishes and comes in a variety of colors and textures. Your home or business will look modern and refreshed.

Green Alternative

Out of all of the siding material choices, steel is one of the most easily recycled. You can choose new siding that is made using recycled materials, and feel good knowing that your new siding can be recycled when it is time to be replaced. Many local governments or utility companies even offer rebates or other incentives for green building materials and energy saving construction materials.
