Home Depot Aluminum Siding vs. PJ Fitzpatrick

Home Depot Aluminum Siding

These days, many people consider vinyl siding or wood siding to be the most popular siding types for homes. However, aluminum has been used as a siding material for over 70 years and there are some homeowners who still prefer its classic look and durability.

Back in the 1940s, aluminum siding was introduced to the housing market. According to Tyvek, it was because of a home improvement dealer: after he noticed how paint stuck to the strong aluminum material on war planes in World War II, he decided to start using it for home siding and could manufacture it in a variety of inviting colors.

Think Again…

When you picture aluminum siding, do you picture siding that looks like it’s made of aluminum foil? That’s not exactly what aluminum siding looks like. While it’s made from the same element, aluminum siding can actually be manufactured in many different colors and can even be stamped with a wood pattern to make it look more natural. Aluminum siding is available in both horizontal and vertical pieces and comes in a variety of widths and thicknesses, depending on your preference.

Even though aluminum is a type of metal, it’s actually very rust-resistant. It’s also very low maintenance and is resistant to insects and fire, which could potentially save homeowners money on their insurance.

Aluminum vs. Other Materials

Aluminum is a very durable element, which means when compared to vinyl siding, aluminum is stronger and less susceptible to cracks and breaks. Also unlike vinyl, aluminum can be painted.

This type of siding is only made by a handful of manufacturers, which can make it more expensive than materials like wood or vinyl. In comparison to stone, brick, or hardwood siding, however, it can actually be more affordable; the price all depends on the size and thickness of the siding and the manufacturer that produces it.
