Time for new siding?  Choosing the right siding for your home is a big deal. When it comes to exterior remodeling for what's probably your biggest investment, you want to go with a siding material and look that is going to complement the home, while also making it stand out. Wondering how steel siding stacks up against the rest?

What Steel Siding Offers to Minnesota Homeowners

Durability and Longevity 

One of the biggest perks of steel siding is the durability that comes with it. It takes a lot of force to create any dents in the siding material. Even against the harshest of storms, the siding will continue to stand strong. Due to its strong durability, this type of siding is going to last a long time. And that's a good thing, considering the hail storms and other severe weather we get here in the upper Midwest.


Steel siding is not just one plain look. You can choose steel siding out of a wide range of finishes, colors, styles and textures. Many of the steel siding materials come with a colorfast coating that is not going to peel, fade or break down with time. Some of our steel siding projects have been in place for more than 30 years and still look like the day that siding was installed.

Little to No Maintenance 

One of the biggest concerns when choosing a siding option is whether or not the siding is high in maintenance - is it going to take lots of your time to keep it looking good?  And what about costs to maintain it? You want to go with a siding that requires very little time or cost to keep it looking good and working well, and steel siding is just that. You never have to worry about re-painting - just washing it down every so often. And because our steel siding is seamless, needing to periodically re-caulk the gaps isn't necessary.

Resistance to Outside Elements 

Steel siding is resistant to a wide range of things that might damage other siding materials. You can keep moisture and water from getting inside the home with the use of steel siding. It will not warp, contract, flake off or break down with wear. You don’t need to worry about adding extra treatments or coatings to the side of your home since it comes with the coating needed to protect the outside of the home. Pests can't bore into it and mold and mildew won't break it down.

Steel siding can also provide a little more curb appeal when it is needed.
