What Can Aluminum Siding Do for Your Home?

Aluminum siding is gaining popularity in the exterior building product market, and here's why. 

It's not an easy choice when choosing exterior siding for your home, but aluminum siding has come a long way since it was introduced in the 1930s. There are many advantages to aluminum siding that boosts your curb appeal and adds functionality.

Here are some quick facts about aluminum that you may or may not know.

Durable and Long-Lasting

Aluminum is an inorganic product featuring non-corroding properties, meaning it won't curl, crack, rust or rot. It’s a durable product that won’t dent easily, and it’s easy to clean, making it the perfect siding solution.

Weather Resistant

Both siding profiles lock together, creating a weather-proof seal, which prevents water infiltration and protects your home from mould and mildew.

Insect and Pest Resistant

Insects and pests cannot penetrate aluminum, and they're not attracted to it like other siding materials.

Reflect the Sun’s Rays

Aluminum is a natural reflector of heat and resists thermal transfer. It reflects the sun's energy away, helping keep your home cool in the warmer months.

Fire Resistant

Since aluminum resists thermal transfer, it cannot burn, making it a safer choice around fireplaces and BBQs.
