Why would you want seamless steel siding on your home?

Seamless steel siding looks great. In fact, there are options that are made to look just like authentic wood. Also, when you put strong and durable seamless steel siding on your home, it means you won’t ever have to worry about having to paint your home again. Seamless steel siding is also installed, with the proper insulation, directly over your existing exterior. This means it adds insulating properties, which can significantly lower your overall utility costs. Another huge benefit offered by this material is that it won’t ever warp, crack or buckle.

Why is seamless steel siding better than normal siding?

Seamless steel siding is custom fit for your home. There are no seams or cracks, like in other siding, which eliminates the potential of moisture and air getting into the cracks. When this siding is installed properly, it will create a more weather-proofed house and is more attractive than other siding materials on the market today. Unlike other siding options, seamless steel siding won’t buckle or blow off the exterior of the home, either.

Is it more costly to install than to repaint the exterior of the home?

While it will be more expensive to install seamless steel siding, than painting, initially, you have to keep in mind that you are going to have to repaint every few years. The seamless steel siding you install can last for up to 50 years when properly maintained. Also, by installing this material, you can increase the overall selling price of your home, which all makes it well worth the initial investment.

How long does it last?

In most cases, seamless steel siding will last for as long as your home is standing. Most manufacturers of this material offer lifetime warranties for their products. These warranties are usually able to be transferred when you sell the home, as well.
