Aluminum siding has had a long-lasting popularity for many years due to various reasons: it is long-lasting, resistant to dents, is fireproof and will not rust. Because of its reflective qualities, heating and cooling costs are reduced. It has an enamel coating and comes in a variety of colours.
The main drawback to aluminum is that it is generally regarded as lesser quality than wood or brick. It can also shake and be noisy during windy conditions.
It is less expensive than wood but more costly than vinyl. It will last between thirty and fifty years. It requires very little maintenance, requiring cleaning every few years and checking for scratches, dents and cracks. It can be repainted, should you decide on a different colour for your home’s exterior.
