Low Maintenance is one of the biggest attractors of metal siding compared to other types of materials. Metal does not absorb, attract, or retain moisture and it doesn't promote fungus or mold. Metal is not an insect-friendly product and does not attract any pests. Regular pest control is not required for this type of siding as with other types such as wood.
Metal is certainly one of the toughest materials and can stand up to almost any external impact. From extreme weather conditions to everyday life, metal will resist damage and hold up nicely. Metal has many styles and types of finishes. Choices abound, so choosing one to fit your likes and desires is easy.
Metal is highly reflective to the sun's UV rays and can help improve a home's overall efficiency, thereby lowering the heating and cooling costs. Less AC in the summertime means more savings! Metal is also recyclable and is one of the most environmentally friendly materials around.
However, metal does cost more up front. With its higher durability and increased warranties and life span, this can offset the initial cost. Metal can be harder to work with when installing, so extra installation time during the project may be a factor. If a section or panel does become damaged, the entire panel must be replaced, instead of a smaller section as with other types of siding. To add, dents added over time to the metal siding, as well as inherent imperfections in the metal itself could be more apparent through the lifetime of the product.
