New Building Trends that Make Abundant Use of Metal Siding
Whether in music, fashion, or design, trends are always changing and preferences changing. When it comes to building and construction design, trends tend to build over long periods, and one new building trend that continues to grow in popularity is the use of metal siding. New buildings have begun to make abundant use of metal siding, and there are a few reasons for this, including:
- Low Cost
- High Durability
- Low Maintenance
- Modern Aesthetics
Metal siding continues to be one of the more affordable siding options, often being cheaper than other materials. Not only is there cost savings in the material itself, but installation is often quicker and cheaper, and it does not require painting after being installed.
Metal siding is very durable, especially when going with high-quality options. Metal siding is weather and fire resistant and can stand up to wear and tear extremely well.
Metal siding is also very easy with almost no maintenance required. It does not need to be painted or stained at any point like wood or hardie board. In fact, the only maintenance required for metal cladding is the occasional washing and cleaning.
Finally, perhaps the main reason why metal siding is being used abundantly has to do with the aesthetic options now available for it. Metal siding can match almost any design, and comes in a wide range of colours and styles. There is now wood grain sheet metal siding available, which has all the benefits of metal, but the looks and aesthetics of wood grain. Contemporary designs incorporate metal siding in many ways, and may even combine different styles of siding to create a complete look.
