5 Unique Benefits of Steel Siding

If you’re considering new siding for your home, you’re likely weighing the pros and cons of vinyl, aluminum, wood, fiber cement, and steel. Although Engstrom’s Siding and Window will help you make an informed decision based on your home’s unique needs, many homeowners in the Midwest have clad their homes in steel siding because of its impressive benefits. Here’s what you need to know.

5 Advantages of Steel Siding

1. Durability

Steel is one of the strongest housing materials available. It won’t expand, blister, rust, dent, or crack and holds up particularly well in high winds and in hailstorms.

2. Energy Efficiency

The reflective quality of steel keeps homes cool in the summer, lowering your energy costs and saving you money. It’s particularly resistant to the damaging effects of high temperatures.

3. Simple Maintenance

Because steel won’t warp, or chip, and is fade-resistant, you don’t have to worry about any special maintenance requirements. It’s also impervious to insects and will keep pests out. When your siding gets dirty, siding contractors recommend hosing it down to restore freshness.

4. Value

Because it’s energy-efficient, steel siding lowers heating and cooling costs. The return on investment (ROI) of long-lasting steel siding is among the best available. If you plan to stay in your home for a decade or more, consider steel. It will preserve the condition of your home for years and years. 

5. Aesthetic Appeal

Steel siding is aesthetically versatile. It can be customized by color, style, and finish. It’s available in a broad range of hues and can be fabricated to replicate tile and wood. With steel, your siding contractor can help bring your vision for your home’s appearance to life.
