Introduced in the 50s, vinyl siding has improved significantly over time. Year after year, manufacturers have worked to eliminate most of the problems that originally plagued vinyl siding, to the point that 32 percent of homeowners have chosen vinyl siding as their fascia of choice.
With all the evolutions vinyl siding has undergone over the past sixty years, there are still some inherent problems, including its inability to properly insulate your home and the fact that it needs cleaning on a regular basis. Fortunately, there is a siding option that is far superior to vinyl siding, and it’s seamless steel siding.
What Is Seamless Steel Siding
Seamless steel siding is panels of siding that are made from steel. Unlike traditional vinyl siding that has seams once installed atop your home’s structure, seamless steel siding is, well, seamless. The steel panels are custom cut at your home to so that each panel affixes to your home perfectly--from end to end.
The Benefits of Choosing Seamless Steel Siding
The material and the method of application presents unique benefits that make seamless steel siding a better option compared to siding. The following are a few benefits you’ll get when you choose seamless steel siding over vinyl:
Energy Efficient. As a seamless, extra layer of protection made of steel, you get top-notch insulation. Coupled with your home’s insulation, seamless steel helps you keep the extreme temperatures of winter and summer outdoors while keeping your home comfortable.
Enhanced durability. Made of heavy gauge, galvanized steel, seamless steel siding will last longer than vinyl siding. Some experts estimate seamless steel can last 70 years due to its enhanced durability.
