Learn how Vinyl Siding Compares to Steel Siding, and Why Steel is the Better Choice
Are you looking for vinyl siding for your home? Vinyl siding might appear at first to be a cheaper alternative to steel, but when you factor in the replacement costs and lack of real protection for your home, it is clear that steel siding is the superior choice.
Steel siding from ABC Seamless is much more durable than vinyl siding, and far more attractive! Unlike vinyl siding, steel is your permanent siding solution. Once it’s installed, you won’t have to do much more than wash it occasionally to keep it looking like new. Do it once. Do it for life. Do it with steel.
There are many advantages of steel siding over “glorified plastic” known as vinyl. Just to name a few:
- Less maintenance. Vinyl will warp, fade, shrink and expand, and buckle over time. Because of this, it will need to eventually be replaced. Seamless steel is installed once, and that’s it!
- Better energy efficiency. Vinyl siding can’t compete with the reflective protection of steel. Not only does steel help reflect the sun’s rays off your home, it also aids in insulating the inside of your home because of its seamless fit. This helps prevent heat exchange through the walls – meaning lower energy bills.
- Better protection from the elements. Steel helps shield your home from damaging impacts. Would you trust plastic to keep your home safe from metal, wood or other debris crashing into your home because of high winds?
- Better fire protection. Vinyl melts at 160° F. Steel melts at 2,500° F. Which would you trust in a fire?
For maximum protection, energy efficiency, and fashionable aesthetics, seamless steel siding is the better choice. If you want siding done right, choose steel siding from The Seamless People™.
