Steel exterior siding is different from aluminum siding. Steel siding is stronger and more impact-resistant than traditional aluminum siding. Installing steel siding on a new or existing house is probably as close as you’ll come to giving your home a Kevlar® vest.
Fire-proof and far more resistant to denting, bending and crimping than aluminum siding, steel siding has been commonly used on houses since the 1950s. Even before then, it proved its worth on farm and commercial buildings.
Steel siding is a green product, formed from American-made steel rather than from petroleum products. Unlike vinyl siding, steel siding can easily be recycled.
Today’s steel siding comes in a variety of popular colors and profiles. Horizontal and vertically-oriented siding installations are possible. Thanks to a galvanizing treatment and a high-tech, multi-layer finishing process, today’s steel siding carries an unprecedented warranty against fading, corrosion and hail damage.
