Know the Advantages of Steel Siding for Your MN Home

Posted by at 9:00 AM

Siding choices are always a consideration, either with a new home or an existing one. You need to know which is the most durable, which will look the best and how much it is going to cost you? You do have a few choices to go with such as steel, wood, vinyl, stucco, concrete or aluminum. More and more homeowner's are choosing to go with the first option – steel. This is not the most affordable choice up front but it does provide many different benefits that the other choices are not able to offer. Durability is one of the biggest benefits that you get with this type of siding. It is hard to dent, and impact does not destroy it. Vinyl siding would be ripped up through a hail storm, while steel siding would take the hail in stride and be fine. Steel is also resistant to water and fire damage that may threaten other siding products. The ease of maintenance is high with steel siding. You just have to wash it down with a hose and it will not rot, chip, fade or flake. You will not have to worry about calling an exterminator for pest problems either. Other options will have these problems. Steel siding is also beautiful on any home, since it comes in many different colors and styles to go with any design.  Don't take our word for it - we've got pictures on Pinterest of some Twin Cities homes we've installed steel siding on.  You can have it mimic other siding as well, such as wood if you'd like. It does not have seems, so it can be wrapped around the home and you do not have to worry about small sections rotting out or having to be replaced. The steel is measured and cut right on the site to ensure the proper fit around the home. Not only that, but it keeps the heat in the home during the winter months. If you're looking to get the most return on your investment, something that lasts a lifetime and can provide the protection you need, then steel siding is the way to go.
