Metal is one of the most durable materials that you can use for your home, particularly your siding. But apart from that, there are also a number of other benefits that you can reap from metal siding. Howard Roofing & Home Improvements, a trusted provider of roof repair and siding replacement services, lists some of the top advantages of metal siding.
Metal siding can last for several years, averaging at around 50 years or more. It’s extremely sturdy and durable, so you won’t have to worry about dents or other such damage. And since metal is an inorganic material, it is resistant to decay. It does not attract insects and rodents, so you can rest assured that these creatures won’t penetrate your siding.
Resistance Against the Elements
Metal siding can withstand a variety of weather conditions such as heavy rain, hail storms and snowfall. Furthermore, it also has fire resistance, eliminating the risk of catching fire or burning.
Much like metal roofing, metal siding is typically easy to maintain since dirt and debris can be washed away by rain, preventing any buildup on the surface. But of course, you would still have to be proactive in taking care of your metal siding, so you can wash it with a garden hose or a pressure washer.
Metal siding usually has good color retention, ensuring that your siding will look good for several years. Since the color does not fade easily from the effects of weathering, you don’t have to worry or spend for frequent repainting.
