How Steel Siding Stacks Up Against Other Siding Materials

Steel siding is one of the most popular materials used today to make Kansas City homes not only more beautiful, but more energy efficient as well.

Whether your home is showing its age or you simply want a solution that requires no painting and very little maintenance, this is the way to go.

Other than steel siding, what are your other options and how do they stack up?

Vinyl, stucco, stone veneer, cement fiber, aluminum and wood are some of the materials used to improve the appearance of a home and reduce the amount and frequency of maintenance required to give a home curb appeal.

Vinyl is a popular choice among the best Kansas City siding companies, however there are a few drawbacks. Fading, warping in extreme temperatures, and cracking are a few of the concerns – and those who are concerned about the environment may steer clear of this type of material.

Stucco, unlike steel siding, may or may not need to be painted over the years. Frequently made of synthetic materials, some homeowners have had problems with this type of siding.

Aluminum was often used “back in the day,” however while it is considered by many as environmentally friendly, you may experience fading and dents. While steel siding is extremely durable, aluminum is not as durable.

Cement fiber is a durable choice, however installation can be problematic due to its heavy weight; this type of siding is far heavier than wood, and not suitable for concealing problems with underlying frames.

Today, most companies use precast stone veneers for application in home siding, and while they are more affordable than the genuine stone veneers crafted of slate, granite, limestone, and other stone, some offer an appearance that is obviously artificial.

For Kansas City homes, no other siding offers the advantages of steel siding. Considering that heavy-weight 28 gauge steel is the core of this type of siding and the absence of seams, you can enjoy a home that is ageless! Imagine your home looking as beautiful and well-maintained 20 years from now as it does the day you have your steel siding installed. The color options are amazing, and you will be excited to know that the colors remain true – no painting required. Add in the fact that your home will be more energy efficient and that this type of siding has been awarded the Energy Star Seal of Approval, and what’s not to like?
