Orlando Metal Siding
In Orlando, metal siding has several general benefits that are to be sought out by homeowners who need to replace their old siding and who are building a new home. Metal siding is among the most fire and pest resistant siding materials. Needless to say, it also has unparalleled strength and resilience against any number of weathering events, including hurricanes. The one inherent problem with metal siding is its tendency to expand and contract with temperature swings, allow installation and design methods can account for this movement easily enough. If you're looking for new siding in Orlando, metal siding is a great material to start, although you'll find you need to understand your many options within this siding category.
Steel Siding v. Aluminum Siding
One of the greatest benefits of aluminum siding is its resistance to salt-air corrosion. In central Florida, you're far enough away from the coast to avoid this hazard, although oxidation and rust is a problem nearly anywhere. Steel siding can be galvanized (covered with zinc) or combined with chromium to create stainless steel. This will largely protect it from rusting. The real benefit of steel siding in Orlando is its strength. Severe storms that slam into the Florida coast can throw all types of lawn furniture and hail at homes. Steel is going to be able to take a lot more than aluminum. You can compensate for this by installing a thicker aluminum, but this tends to eat away at any savings aluminum might have been able to offer. In the end, both metals have something to offer for your home, and only by carefully considering each can be assured of the best solution for your siding project.
Seamless Steel Siding
True of both roofing and siding projects, too many homeowners get caught up in the surface materials of the installation and ignore the overall design and system of the project. Every siding material on the market has the general properties to protect and insulate your home, and every siding material has the same Achilles' heel. The joints or seams between individual panels or shingles of a siding installation are, by far, the most vulnerable place of your siding. These seams can allow water to get behind your siding and sit there, eating away at the connective tissue between the siding and walls of your home. This can lead to disasters including extensive water and rot damage or siding that begins to peel or detach from your home. Seamless steel siding eliminates this problem. Fabricated to the exact dimensions of your home, this seamless siding creates arguably the most impenetrable siding system available to homeowners.
Metal Siding Costs
While all siding materials have choices associated with them that affect cost, few have the wide range of metal siding. Galvanized steel, stainless steel, and aluminum all have slightly different costs that may actually fluctuate with market prices. The thickness of the metal, too, can have an exponential affect on the cost of the material. Seamless steel siding fabrication will also have generally higher costs associated with it. Generally, you get what you pay for, and high-end metal siding is going to be stronger and more durable than almost anything else out there, but because metal is influenced by the market, you can't assume that more expensive metal siding is, by nature, superior. Our data suggests that the average siding installation costs about $10,000 for an average-sized home, and your choices of metal siding can influence your specific project so this cost fluctuates closer to $5,000 or up to $25,000 or more.
Installation and Contractors
Of course, this probably sounds overwhelming, but you're not in it alone. Talk to a local Orlando metal siding contractor about what you want, what your siding installation budget is, and the relative pros and cons of different metal siding choices. Some contractors are more hands-off and prefer to let you make your own decisions by looking at metal siding manufacturers and their websites, while others may launch into a 45-minute diatribe about the nuances of galvanized metal.
In the end, however, what you're looking for is someone you feel comfortable with and can trust to do a great job for a fair price. Each and every contractor in our system is put through a rigorous ten-step screening process. We also provide you with access to our quality-controlled database of customer ratings and reviews so you can see what other Orlando homeowners have thought about individual contractors and their siding projects in general. While you shouldn't underestimate the importance of quality siding, don't underestimate the scope of the project, either. Your home will be subjected to several days of loud banging that will make it inconvenient for anybody who wants to rest and relax inside.
