Hammer Icon How Long Does Steel Siding Last?

Unlike other siding alternatives, steel siding won’t need to be repainted every few years. It’s also easy to clean, requires minimal maintenance over the years, and won’t swell or warp over time.

When steel siding is properly maintained, it can last up to 50 years.

Hammer Icon Does Steel Siding Rust?

It’s a common misconception that steel siding rusts. Although this was once the case, modern steel siding is treated during the manufacturing process and won’t rust as the years go by.

Hammer Icon Can You Repaint Steel Siding?

Today’s steel siding has a seamless barrier that minimizes air and water infiltration, keeping mildew and mold out of your home or building and protecting its finish. You can even capture the look of real wood with the depth and texture of wood grain steel siding.

Steel siding is easy to paint and uses a slightly different painting process than other types of exterior siding.

Hammer Icon Does Steel Siding Fade?

Steel siding is available in a wide range of bold colors and natural wood stain looks. Expect your siding to maintain its color over time without fading when exposed to UV radiation.

The same process that’s used to prevent rusting in steel siding also helps to prevent fading. And unlike paint, it won’t flake or chip.

Hammer Icon Does Steel Siding Make Noise?

If you’ve ever been in an old metal building, you may recall the sound of rain echoing against the metal. Today’s siding is manufactured differently and better insulated than the siding of the past, making it just as quiet as any wood or vinyl siding option available on the market.
