Your choice of siding for your exterior home improvement project should be one that can resist insects, fires and the harsh elements brought about by the local climate. There are numerous siding options available on the market, one of which is aluminum, one of the most popular among homeowners.
In today’s post, Twin Cities Siding Professionals, your local source of siding, share the qualities of aluminum siding and how it compares to our James Hardie® siding product offerings.
Aluminum siding is first coated with a formula that inhibits corrosion and rust, with coloration included right after for further protection and design. Its metallic structure and appearance makes this particular siding highly-resistant to exposure and wear. When properly installed and maintained, it can last for decades.
Our James Hardie siding, meanwhile, also displays such durability. The difference is on the material, however. A composite of cement, sand and cellulose fiber, our siding offers superior strength and dimensional stability.
Resistance to Water, Insects and Fires
One of the most cost-effective siding materials available, aluminum has innate properties that protect it against the elements. For instance, it doesn’t absorb moisture, which means it won’t rot or support the growth of mold or mildew. Unlike wood siding, aluminum is completely impervious to insects. In addition, the material is non-flammable, which means it won’t burn or melt.
These same qualities, however, are also evident in our James Hardie siding products. Ours, in fact, are specifically designed to withstand the challenging Minnesota climate. They are engineered to stand up beautifully, whatever the elements.
