Let’s face it, there are a lot of options out there for siding material. And ultimately, the material you choose will depend heavily on what matters to you. If you’re looking for something that’s more flexible and can take on a lot of appearances, natural wood is a good option. However, if you’re looking to replace or install new siding on your commercial building, metal may be your best option. But there are a lot more options out there that could be right for you and your company so let’s take a look. If you decide you’re ready to speak with a siding contractor in Colorado Springs, Denver, or Boulder, please don’t hesitate to contact DJK Siding and Construction.
Metal is the material recommended by many siding contractors for commercial buildings. It offers several benefits over other materials in that it lasts a long time and is extremely durable, it is low maintenance, has a huge amount of flexibility as far as design is concerned, and has many different style options. Chances are if you’ve gone to any brick and mortar store recently, you’ve seen metal siding. Many people do not immediately recognize metal siding when they see it, simply because it comes in so many different styles and designs.
Metal siding is a great option for business owners who want something that can be both flexible and uniform.
Vinyl siding is popular for remodeling and new siding installation. It retains a lot of the same qualities of natural wood without the high costs. Vinyl won’t peel or split after several months or years and doesn’t require any time-consuming maintenance to keep it looking great all year long. It also never needs to be stained, scraped or painted because the color goes through the panel.
Fiber cement is fire-, rot-, and termite-proof; it’s not affected by the weather; requires minimal upkeep and essentially has the same performance as masonry. Fiber Cement goes for a small portion of the price of wood, shingles, clapboards, stone, and brick, but outperforms them in nearly every way.
Although we’ve already established the downsides of wood for your siding, there’s no denying the benefits of natural or engineered wood. With regular maintenance and under normal conditions, professionally installed wood looks great and will last as long as the building itself.
Wood siding is held in place by nails, screws, and sometimes the construction adhesives, but it’s important to make sure there is some type of moisture barrier because water can get trapped in between the siding and the home. Wood siding usually starts to deteriorate first at the knot holes, joints, or places where it is already damaged, so you’ll want to make sure you do periodic maintenance on your siding including painting, staining, and caulking.
