There aren’t that many homeowners that opt for aluminum siding these days, but this doesn’t mean that it isn’t an option that you should consider. While the price of aluminum siding is higher than many other modern materials, you might decide that the premium price is worth it for the benefits. So what are the upsides to aluminum siding?
First, it is fairly sturdy when compared with other materials. Unlike vinyl and wood, fire and high heat won’t damage it. You won’t have any issues with wood rot or wood destroying insects, and the cold weather won’t make it brittle, as it does to vinyl.
Aluminum does have a tendency to dent if it is struck, so if you are worried about this, you might want to get a thicker aluminum option. If your siding is damaged, it will be more work to replace a single panel of aluminum siding than it is with other materials.
