Twin Cities Homeowners Looking for an Eco-Friendly Siding Choice Should Consider Our Seamless Steel Siding

Did you know that steel is the top recycled material in the U.S.?  That’s just one of the reasons we put our seamless steel siding as the #1 recommendation when homeowners in the Minneapolis area ask us. There are many benefits to this durable siding material, but we’re finding that people are paying close attention to sustainability and the impact on our environment when they are choosing building materials for their exterior remodeling projects.

Why is steel siding such a ‘green’ siding material?

Recycling is a big part of it.  Not only is the siding itself completely recyclable (including any scraps from installation), it is manufactured from recycled steel.   That means your siding material contains salvaged metal that didn’t go into a landfill; instead it was used to create one of the most durable siding products on the market.

Another thing we point out is that this siding is incredibly low maintenance. You won’t be spending time, money, effort, and more materials on upkeep.  And while you might not think about this particular characteristic in terms of sustainability, it’s something that should be factored in.  The color finish will endure, meaning you won’t be needing to repaint it every few years.  And the method we use for installation makes this product seamless, meaning no gaps to let in air or moisture, unlike other siding products.  This is one more plus in terms of an eco-friendly siding material, because you’re cutting down on wasted heating or cooling because of air leakage through your siding.

Consider the expected lifespan as you evaluate whether a siding product is eco-friendly.  Our steel siding holds up incredibly well to our harsh weather, so it won’t need to be replaced or repaired as often as another siding product.  How long will it last?  At least 40 years.  In fact, the first steel siding we installed on a home in Minneapolis still looks like it did the day it was installed, over 35 years ago.  Minnesota’s climate is no threat to this siding.

Homeowners around our area (and the rest of the country) are turning to this exceptional siding material instead of wood. No trees have to be cut to produce this siding, but you can get the look of real wood without all the drawbacks.  Just look at the home in the photo above. Unless you go right up to the house and touch the siding, you probably wouldn’t be able to tell it was metal and not wood shakes.  (It’s also available in traditional lap siding that also looks like woodgrain.)
