Any siding and residential roof installation expert will tell you that aluminum siding is steadily falling out favor with homeowners. This is because it can be noisy, wear out easily and can even become out of style due to the availability of other siding materials. Despite that, however, aluminum siding shouldn’t be completely overlooked as the benefits it can provide often outweigh its less than favorable features, most of which are minor.

In this post, Timberline Roofing and Contracting discusses the five benefits of aluminum siding that still makes it worth considering today.

  1. Durability – Every homeowner is looking for durability in their siding to avoid replacing it all the time. Fortunately, aluminum siding is often made from aluminum coil stock and other types of hard materials, making it incredibly durable. It’s also coated with a protective top layer to prevent any form of erosion.

  1. Eco-Friendly – Looking to live an eco-friendly lifestyle? Aluminum siding can actually help you achieve that since it’s made of recycled materials. Apart from that, it’s also 100% recyclable, meaning if you ever have to get rid of it, it’ll never end up in a landfill.

  1. Energy-Efficient – Since it’s an eco-friendly siding material, this also means aluminum siding is energy-efficient. It’s a good insulator for hot and cold months, allowing you to save money on your monthly energy bills throughout the year.

  1. Low-Maintenance – It can be hard to maintain your siding, especially if you live a busy lifestyle. Thankfully, you won’t have to worry much about maintenance when you have aluminum siding. All you’ll have to do to maintain it is to give it a quick rinse a few times throughout the year to remove any debris that may have lodged itself in the seams. It’s also waterproof and doesn’t swell or shrink due to fluctuating temperature, so you won’t have to repair it all the time either.

  1. Cost-Effective – Due to the fact that it’s made from recycled materials, aluminum siding is one of the most cost-effective siding options available. Because it is extremely affordable, you can choose aluminum siding if you want to keep your budget small. You won’t even have to pay much in labor costs as well since the material is lightweight and very easy to install.
