Can Metal Siding Buckle with the Heat?
The increasing usage of metal siding in commercial and residential developments is hard to ignore. Many developers are transitioning to metal siding for its unique benefits. It offers a natural look and is easy to install. But the recent heatwaves have homeowners and developers wondering if metal siding can handle the heat during the summer.
What is Metal Siding?
Metal siding is a type of exterior cladding that is commonly used in residential and commercial properties. It is made from aluminum, steel, or other alloys and can be used as a standalone siding or installed over another type of siding. It is most commonly found in western Canada, although it is gaining popularity in the rest of the country and throughout North America.
The biggest draw to metal siding is its durability and minimal maintenance requirements. It can last for decades without any repainting. It is also rust-resistant, energy-efficient, and available in different colors and dimensions.
Is Metal Siding Affected by Heat?
For structures in British Columbia, it is unlikely that metal siding will buckle under the heat. Metal siding is known for being durable in any environment. Aluminum and steel siding is non-combustible and fire-resistant. Therefore, Metal siding is practically fireproof.
As long as your metal siding is professionally installed, it will not buckle under the heat.
