The siding of your home is a large part of what people see, and it will make a first impression that can color everything from then on. So you want something that looks nice, but at the same time is functional.

Aluminum siding can definitely check those boxes, but it does come at a premium cost.

Aluminum is a sturdy material for your home, and it has many advantages over other choices. It isn’t affected by cold, heat or other environmental factors. You also won’t have to worry about wood destroying organisms or wood rot. The only major problem with aluminum is that it can be dented if struck, and when that happens it is somewhat difficult to replace only a single panel.

To prevent denting, you can invest in a thicker type of aluminum siding, but naturally, this will also come at a premium cost. In the end, you will need to make the cost versus benefit calculation for yourself.
