Metal Siding and Panels have become exceedingly popular on the construction market. With products varying in weight, durability and composition, there are options to meet the requirements and preferences of any property owner or builder. There are many different colours and finishes available when selecting metal siding products for your project. Clear finishes that preserve the appearance of steel panels as well as metallic and specialty coatings can be used to achieve a very modern appearance while solid standard colours and even wood grain coatings can be used if you prefer classic or rustic designs.
Metal cladding offers excellent protection from moisture, insects and rodents but one of the most notable advantages is that it does not deteriorate over time as wood or plastic products will. This means your cladding system will last many years longer than most other products on the market before needing to be repaired or replaced. The versatility of metal siding is quite surprising.

With panels being available for purchase in multiple sizes from 3’x8’ to 4’x12’ and the ability to cut the panels on site to fit your own custom design creates unlimited possibilities when it comes to cladding your home with metal panels.

Vertical metal siding

Choosing a vertical siding system is a great way to accentuate the height of your homes exterior walls. By installing the panels vertically, the installation phase becomes more time consuming, however, these systems are designed to perform just as well vertically as they would installed horizontally. Most types of metal siding use the exact same components no matter which direction the system installed. If you are interested in using this type of cladding for your upcoming exterior envelope project, please feel free to contact us to discuss the options available and how to make the most of your budget.

Installing metal siding

First and foremost, no matter the type of metal cladding being used , it is necessary to prepare the wall surface on which they will be installed. Any protruding nails or screws should be removed and the area should be inspected for any damage or deterioration before covering the walls with weather barrier membranes. Once the weather barrier product that you’ve selected for your project is installed and all corners and window frames are completely waterproof the panel installation can begin.
Depending on the type of metal cladding system that is being installed, the process may need to be mapped out with specific panels fabricated for each area, but in most cases, the installation can start from the lowest wall section and work up towards the roof line ensuring that moisture can drain freely from the top to the bottom of the cladding system.

Pros and Cons
When deciding on a cladding system, you should carefully consider all the possible pros and cons of the product before making a final decision. Below you can find some of the key points associated with metal siding.


1. Low Maintenance Requirements
Many siding systems require regular care and maintenance after they have been installed. They need to be cleaned and inspected regularly to make sure there is no damage that can cause leaks over time. Many systems can deteriorate if left unchecked and even require stains and other treatments to maintain their original integrity. That is not the case when using metal siding systems, especially when considering aluminum or steel cladding. The coatings on these systems will last over a decade with the metal composition lasting up to 50 years with only a yearly cleaning and inspection being necessary.
2. Resistance to Damage
Even in cases of large hail, your metal panels will be safe from damage. Basic metal panel systems have been used for decades on the commercial market, from large industrial builds to small business renovations due to its resistance to damage and ease of replacement if damage were to occur. Today, with extruded aluminum systems and more intricate steel profiles being introduced to the market, homeowners have been able to take advantage of superior protection against damage, whether by natural events or accidental impact.
3. Fire and Heat Protection
This may not affect homeowners in cooler areas, however, many people have been able to advantage of the fire and heat resistance of metal panels in warmer and dryer climates. Some systems like wood or vinyl can see significant damage when exposed to extreme dryness and any amount of flames. Metal panels can entirely fabricated using flame retardant materials which can protect your home from devastation in the case of being exposed to small brush fires in drought conditions.
4. Eco-Friendly Materials
Many construction products create non-recyclable waste from the production phase until the installation phase. The fact that most metal systems are custom made to specific sizes does not only save cost on raw materials but also creates less overall construction waste during your project. Another thing to consider is that most materials used to produce metal siding are entirely recyclable which means that any material cut offs and old metal siding can be disposed of responsibly.
5. Ultra-modern appearance
Thanks to high quality coatings, you can make any project look architecturally modern with sharp lines and clean metallic coatings. If you are looking to achieve this style, there are infinite possibilities using different panel sizes, colours and profiles. If you are aiming for more of a classic build, there are quite a few wood grain product coatings available as well.


1. Some metals are prone to rust
In the event that the panel coating gets damaged or removed, rust can begin to form in the areayou’re your project is located in a very humid are or near salt water, it is a good idea to inspect the coating from time to time and address any rust issues promptly.

2. The appearance is far from traditional
Most steel and metal siding products are designed for either modern or industrial projects. There are some great product options specifically designed for classic or traditional builds by using wood grain pattern coatings, but they do not perfectly imitate the texture of natural wood products.
3. Relative Material Cost
Some metal cladding systems are quite inexpensive, such as corrugated steel siding. However, products made from aluminum or specialty metals like Copper, Zinc or Stainless Steel can become costly if used over a large area.
