Aluminum siding not only improves the look of your home and increases its value but provides relief from costly periodic painting. Many people choose aluminum siding for its beauty as well as its protection. If you live near a coastal area you’ll find aluminum siding is superior protection. The salt and moisture in the air reacts with the aluminum to form aluminum oxide, a very hard coating that protects it from degrading.

Aluminum siding has many advantages. It is durable, maintenance free, fire resistant and won’t rot. The quarter inch thick foam board that is placed before the siding goes on helps insulate your house; you’d be surprised how much that little quarter inch can help with keeping your house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Putting siding on your house protects it from the elements and also from moisture, mold and algae.

The cost of aluminum siding is about the same as it would cost to paint your house. The difference is that it’s a permanent solution and once it is installed you’ll never have to spend money on it again. For this reason it’s a very good investment.

You find that aluminum siding comes in nearly any color you would like, including faux wood finish. Depending on how large your home is, it can take anywhere from one day or up to a week to install it but once the job is done you’ll be thrilled with how beautiful your home looks. And you’ll never have to paint again!
