Few materials match up to aluminum siding when it comes to cost, downsides, maintenance, and effectiveness. Aluminum siding truly is one of the longest lasting, most durable, cheapest materials to use when considering siding options. Aluminum siding is a weather resistant as well as corrosion proof material. This means that it’s not going to rot or rust or fall apart after a few harsh winters. Consider that it is almost completely customizable because it can be painted over and over again and it quickly becomes clear why aluminum siding has, over the past sixty years become the preferred siding material.
