Steel siding is a great choice for homes that frequently experience climate extremes. They can handle impact from wind-blown debris, not to mention freezing temperatures, better than other types of siding.
However, steel siding is not without its disadvantages. That’s why we recommend Mastic® steel siding to our clients. Play Gem® introduced several features to its Mastic steel siding line to offset conventional steel’s inherent weaknesses. The roof repair experts at UHQ Construction list the manufacturer’s most popular siding options as well as their benefits below.
Seamless Steel Siding
Steel siding is already known for its durability, but Ply Gem® went a step further to make sure it meets the highest of standards. Mastic seamless steel siding is made from heavy-duty galvanized steel that can withstand harsh weather and resist corrosion. If you’re looking to reduce your household’s waste contribution to landfills, you’ll be glad to know Mastic’s seamless steel siding is 100% recyclable.
Steel Lap Siding
Aside from durability, some homeowners are also concerned about their home’s curb appeal. Mastic’s seamless steel siding has a sleek look, but there’s just no substitute for the classic appeal of wood. Ply Gem’s Mastic steel lap siding is better than regular wood since it captures the material’s classic appeal but doesn’t need a lot of upkeep.
Steel Board & Batten Siding
However, for those who prefer a more rustic look to their exterior, steel board & batten siding is a better choice. This type of siding doesn’t need a lot of maintenance and can last for a long time, thanks to its 28-gauge G60 hot-dipped galvanized steel that’s protected by a high-performance coating.
Regardless of which type of steel siding you choose, only hire a qualified contractor to make sure you get to enjoy all of the aforementioned benefits.
