Common Questions Regarding Steel Siding
Is it really as good as you say?
Steel siding is actually one of the toughest siding choices out there. Not only is it recommended to those that live in areas where storms occur often (like here in the Twin Cities) but also is a siding that comes with multiple energy saving benefits and looks great on the side of the home, too!
How long will it last?
Steel siding is able to last for up to 50 years and it provides the homeowner with a way to put siding on their home and then not have to replace it again for decades. This is an investment that keeps on giving. It requires almost no maintenance other than an occasional cleaning. Some of our steel siding projects are more than 30 years old, and they are still protecting those homes from Minnesota extreme weather.
Can I personalize or customize it?
You can! Steel siding is not just silver material that you see on pole barns and agricultural buildings. With steel siding designed for residential purposes, you can choose from many colors and hues that make your home stand out. It still provides the protection you need and it still looks the best that it can. It is a win-win for everyone. And with the steel trim accessories available, you can mix and match colors for a distinctive, unique look.
