Vinyl siding has become a popular siding option for homeowners in the last few years, but it’s not the only tried-and-true material available. Before vinyl, aluminum siding was the most popular choice, and it remains an enticing siding material. We’ve encountered many customers that wouldn’t even consider installing vinyl siding because they had such a great experience with aluminum siding.

If your current siding needs to be replaced, contemplate aluminum for your home. The following article will discuss a few of the advantages and why you should consider installing it.

Reliability 

Aluminum siding is built durable. Aluminum is a tough material and will perform excellently in the harshest climates. Many homeowners fear that intense rainstorms or heavy hailstorms could impact their aluminum siding; however, if any damage is done to the siding, all blemishes can be easily fixed with a quick sanding and painting project.

 

Customization

Customization is important for many homeowners, which is why we strongly recommend aluminum siding for those looking for a personalized touch. Aluminum siding can be painted, which means you’ll never have to settle for a single colour if you get tired or bored of its current appearance. This is an important resale factor – a fresh coat of paint on your house can really help your home stand out on the market as it would instantly boost your property’s curb appeal.

In this regard, aluminum has a major advantage over vinyl siding. If you were to repaint vinyl siding, you’d risk ruining the appearance of the vinyl. Paint does not adhere to vinyl siding, and it would result in paint dripping down the side of your home. The only other way to add a personalized touch to your vinyl siding would be to replace it altogether, which would be a costly investment.

 

Low-Maintenance

You’ve got a lot on your plate as a homeowner, and there’s no time for you to be worried about your siding. As opposed to wood siding, aluminum siding will never rot. You also won’t have to worry about it cracking in freezing cold temperatures, something homeowners with vinyl siding must keep an eye on. Furthermore, you will never have to worry about your aluminum siding rusting or becoming a safe haven for insects and other pests. In summary, aluminum will save you a lot of time, effort and money.

 

When it comes time to upgrade your siding, stick with something that is tried and true. Aluminum siding is a reliable, customizable, and low maintenance siding material that will improve your home’s aesthetic and resale value.
