Aluminum is a popular siding material, and this is due to its affordability, durability and beauty. But these are just a few of the benefits homeowners will gain from choosing this material, which has been used on the exterior of homes for decades, predating newer materials such as vinyl.
What is Aluminum Siding?
Aluminum siding is a specially treated metallic material that is applied to the exterior of buildings. However, due to the way in which it is manufactured, it will not outwardly resemble standard aluminum, which is shiny, grey and metallic in appearance. It can appear in a variety of colors and textures, and was first used during the 1940s.
When Do You Need Aluminum Siding in New Jersey?
- When you want something that can be updated easily: Despite the fact that vinyl siding is newer, aluminum has the advantage of being paint friendly. This means the outward look of the home can easily be changed and updated without spending a significant sum of money. Aluminum also has the advantage of sectional replacement, which means that when you do decide to replace it, you will save a lot of time.
- You want longevity: Aluminum siding has been used on a property for more than 50 years because it’s that tough. It’s able to withstand the harsh weather which appears in the northeastern U.S. When properly cared for, homeowners can expect it to last a minimum of forty years. Any damage it does sustain is simple to fix by either painting or sanding the area which has been affected. Dents, which commonly result from flying debris and hail, can be removed as aluminum is malleable. If an area has sustained significant damage, you can just replace that section without having to remove the entire exterior.
- When you want to save money: Aluminum is super affordable. In fact, in terms of cost other materials will exceed aluminum by as much as 80 percent. Installation is also easy, and can be completed in about 24 hours, which means that when hiring a contractor, you will pay less when compared to installing other materials, which will take longer and drive up labor costs.
- You desire ease of maintenance: Aluminum siding is not high maintenance by any means. It can be quickly installed using a small number of tools and most contractors will have a toolkit specifically designed for it.
