Keeping your home safe and looking good is one of the most important functions, for any homeowner. Different homeowners gravitate towards different design options that will satisfy their needs; some tend to be more particular than others.
Depending on where you live, you may need to protect your home from things like severe weather conditions and day-to-day wear and tear. One fantastic way to protect your home and keep it looking good for longer is by installing metal siding.
Metal is known for being an exceptionally durable material, a fantastic insulator, and an energy-saving feature on your home. If you’ve been thinking about installing siding onto your own property, keep reading as we detail why it’s a great addition to your house.
Strength and Durability
Being one of the toughest materials out there, metal is capable of protecting your home against the onslaught of the elements. Metal has a wind rating of about 140 mph, which means should a storm roll into town, your home will be protected.
You may have heard that metal is a highly energy-efficient material. It’s capable of keeping your home cool in the summers and warm during winter. Its high reflectance rate will do all the work for you to keep it nice and comfortable inside your home, while also protecting it from harmful UV rays.
The metal used for your home’s siding can be recycled once it has reached the end of its lifespan. When installing metal siding on your home, you can check what percentage of the siding consists of recycled materials and thus create a more eco-friendly home for you and your family.
You might think that the only colors available for metal are plain greys. With a coating, you can dress up your home and protect it from the elements with any color or texture of choice! If natural textures like copper interest you more than matte grey, you’ll be happy to know that you can incorporate warm hues into your home in a natural way.
