The Advantages of Steel and Vinyl for Siding Amarillo Houses

By Mary Martin Subscribe to RSS | May 3rd 2012 | Views:

One sunny day, you decided to lean against your wall, close your eyes, and gather your thoughts about the events for the day. Suddenly, you felt something sharp up your back, followed by your body’s instinctive jerk away from the wall. You looked at the wall and saw, to your dismay, that some of the siding has peeled off.

If your house’s wall protects your house’s interior, then the sidings protect your wall from the weather. Sidings are either sheets or individual boards and shingles made of corrugated galvanized steel or vinyl, and are designed to keep out rain and wind. Siding joints cannot be packed too tightly together, since most building materials expand and contract with temperature changes.

Corrugated Galvanized Steel. Steel siding works the same way as steel roofs and is available in sheet form. By itself, steel is prone to rust. However, when covered (or galvanized) by a rust-resistant material like zinc, steel also becomes resistant to corrosion. Likewise, the corrugated surface makes rain movement down the siding easier.

Steel siding is very strong and copes well with most weather disturbances, like the blizzards and hot summers of Amarillo, Texas. It’s also very resistant to fire and insects. You can expect steel siding to last for the same number of decades as your entire house. If you’re conscious about the environment, rest assured that most corrugated galvanized steel is recyclable; in addition, steel possesses the ability to hold any coloration well.

Vinyl. Another material that doesn’t lose its coloration easily is vinyl. This material for siding Amarillo houses have is already pre-manufactured in many colors. Thus, you have more freedom to design your home however you please. Vinyl is also cheap, so you don’t have to worry too much about the cost of replacement.

By installing durable and low-maintenance Amarillo siding made of vinyl, you can save on the installation costs and the cost of the material itself. Vinyl sidings are usually perforated with holes, so you don’t have to force the nails through. If you’re planning to sell your home anytime in the future, you may want to show your prospective buyers your home’s beautiful vinyl siding so you could command a higher resale value.

Steel and vinyl are just two of the several materials you can use for siding. Amarillo siding may also be made of wood, masonry, and composite materials. For more information on siding materials, visit
