Siding is a great and affordable choice for you to remodel the exterior or your home or business. Here are the aluminum siding alternatives that we can install:
- Fiber cement
Vinyl – All types of vinyl siding are suitable alternatives to aluminum siding. Vinyl choices are more than twice as thick as aluminum, allowing this choice to be much more durable and resistant to scratches and dents. Vinyl also provides a superior method of coloration. Its color is solid and is manufactured right into each panel; whereas aluminum’s color is a baked-on enamel that will chip and eggshell over time. Vinyl provides a more affordable alternative to aluminum as well, because it can last up to 50 years or even longer, without needing to be repainted.
Fiber cement– Fiber cement is another great choice when compared to aluminum siding. Fiber cement consists of cement mixed with sand and cellulose fibers. This is an outstanding choice for those customers who would like the wood plank or cedar shingle look to their home or business. It made in a wide array of colors and textures to look identical to the classic grain texture of authentic wood exteriors. Fiber cement is much less expensive than real wood, and it is more long-lasting as it is not privy to rot or flammability. This exterior choice is fire resistant, creating a safe environment for you and your family or employees.
Steel – If you are still interested in a metal exterior, steel provides a good alternative to aluminum siding. Steel, as a metal, is significantly stronger than aluminum. This holds true for exterior choices as well. It is much less likely to dent and be damaged during shipment and during the installation process. Steel comes in all types of colors and you are sure to find something that matches the character of your home or business’ current architecture. Some choices even have extra tough vinyl or polyurethane coatings to decrease the need for maintenance. Steel can come in a flat style for residential applications or a corrugated style that is popular with commercial clients.
Foam-backed– Foam-backing is a superior choice to aluminum siding with emphasis on superior insulation. Foam-backed differs from regular vinyl because it has solid foam pieces installed on the back of each panel. Aesthetically, this allows each piece to lay flatter against the structure, creating a more finished and polished final result. The other huge benefit of a foam-backed exterior is its superior insulation ability. This means that in the cold winter months, less warm air will escape from the structure and less cold air will get out in very hot temperatures. The end result is much lower heating and cooling costs to the homeowner or commercial client.
