Going green with building materials is a great way to help preserve the environment for future generations. If you would like to choose a more sustainable siding for your home in the Twin Cities area, there are many options available.
Seamless Steel Siding
Seamless steel is a prime example of green building materials. Most of the metal used in this product is recycled from other sources and is considered very sustainable. Seamless steel is also available in textured patterns that closely resemble wood grain, as well as many beautiful colors to match your home’s style and design.
The benefits of seamless steel siding are amazing! This incredibly tough, eco-friendly siding is engineered to last for more than half a century and can endure the harshest weather of a Northern Midwest winter.
Seamless steel is a super-tough siding and requires very little maintenance or repainting to retain its curb appeal. This durable product is also impervious to damage by insects and the threat of fire.
Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber cement siding performs very well in a northern climate with the icy winters and rainy, humid summers. Fiber cement siding is super-tough, easy to install and can last for as long as 50 years. For this reason, fiber cement is considered a green building material. Fiber cement siding closely resembles the texture and look of real wood, but is a much more durable product.
Like seamless steel siding, insects tend to leave fiber cement siding alone. The sand and cement from which this building material is manufactured do not attract insects that feed and nest in real wood. This product doesn’t rot like wood or require scraping, sanding, or frequent repainting or staining, making it a low-maintenance option for your home.
When fiber cement siding is installed over a house wrap, it creates an extremely weather-tight covering for the interior of your home and helps reduce energy bills. Fiber cement keeps your home warm and comfortable despite the cold weather.
